#TipTuesday: Omega 3 Fatty Acids Helps Depression and Anxiety

#TipTuesday is a series Max Agency — one of the top Toronto talent agencies  — will be doing every week where we share helpful tips for the industry! This could be tips on auditions, bookings, beauty, fashion and more!

This week’s tip is concerning your health: Omega 3 Fatty Acids can actually improve your mental health.

A lot of people tend to get the winter blues during this time of the year, mostly due to the cold weather or feeling alone during the holidays. However, studies have shown that omega 3 fatty acids tend to lower levels of depression! It has been shown that when people who are depressed start taking omega-3 supplements, their symptoms improve!

Omega 3 fatty acids are most commonly found in fish, nuts and plant seeds. So stock up on the chestnuts this winter! They also have a lot of other health benefits such as being an anti-inflammatory, reducing the risk of cancer, improving eye health, lessening the risk of heart disease and much more!

So if you are finding yourself feeling particularly down this season, take a look at your diet and see if you can increase your intake of omega 3 fatty acids!

Healthiest Fast Food Options – National Fast Food Day!

Happy National Fast Food Day!

If you want to enjoy yourself today yet keep that fit figure for your auditions and photoshoots, then here is a list of some of the healthiest fast food options available right now:

McDonald’s:

Classic Hamburger

To keep it healthy, you don’t have to stick to the salads. McDonald’s has made an effort to make their burgers better and you’re best bet is the classic smaller hamburger. To make it even more healthy, throw away the bun and keep the patty.

Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad

McDonald’s

Ordering a salad and cutting out the bun or tortilla wrap is already better for your health. It is one of the restaurant’s menu items with the lowest amount of calories. To make it even better, use less dressing than provided or even ask for a healthier option such as low-fat balsamic dressing.

Fruit N Yogurt Parfait

McDonald’s

More of an obvious choice, the parfait is low on calories and delicious! If you need a quick breakfast or snack option, you can feel guilt free ordering this!

Chicken Mcnuggets

McDonald’s

The chicken will give you the protein you need. Instead of pairing it with french fries, try ordering a side salad along with it. Stay low on the dressing of course.

Burger King

Whopper Jr. (without mayo)

Without the mayo, this sandwich becomes much healthier! Despite it being the smaller version, it will still fill you up with the protein and carbs.

BK Veggie Burger

This burger is a great source of protein that also keeps the fat low. Get rid of the cheese and mayo to ensure it’s the healthiest it can be.

Chicken Nuggets

Chicken nuggets are low in calories and sodium however make sure to pair them with something light as they will fill you up. A 4-piece is your best bet, increasing the nugget count only increases the calories.

Taco Bell

Bean Burrito

This burrito is healthier than most. Beans are rich in fibre and it contains a lot of protein too!

Chicken Soft Taco

This taco is low on calories yet still pretty high in protein. No need to feel guilty ordering this taco!

Wendy’s

Small Chili

This option is low in fat while high in fibre and protein. Don’t feel pressured to get a burger when you visit Wendy’s, try their award winning chili!

Grilled Chicken Wrap

The best wrap option on their menu. The calories are relatively low with a great balance of carbs and protein.

Chipotle

A Bowl or Salad

Opting for a bowl or salad eliminates the tortilla which contains hundred of calories in itself. From there, you can add your choice of protein, beans and brown rice instead of white. Adding vegetables and guacamole are good things but try to avoid adding much cheese, sour cream, salsa and chips!

These are just some of the healthier options at some of the most popular fast food chains! Let us know your favourite healthy fast food hack!
