Other plant-based sources of Omega-3 fatty acids

Walnuts, soy foods, pumpkin seeds, and canola (rapeseed) oil are additional sources of Omega-3 fats. These foods contain a lower concentration of ALA than flax and Chia seeds, but they can still help boost your overall ALA intake. In addition, these foods contain disease-fighting vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and dietary fiber, which are all part of a heart-healthy diet.
