salmon (or most cold water fish for that matter ie mackerel, herring)
most nuts)

Tips to substitute when making your food:
- saute with olive oil instead of butter
- use olive oil rather than vegetable oil in salad dressing and marinades
- sprinkle nuts or sunflower seeds on salads instead of bacon bits
- snack on small handfulls of nuts rather than chips or processed crackers
- Try peanut or other nut-butter spreads (nonhydrogenated, duh) on celery, bananas, or rice cakes
- Try avocado rather than cheese on your sandwich
