Don't forget about flax seeds--my favorite.

http://paleodietlifestyle.com/are-nuts-and-seeds-healthy/

Flax seeds are high in polyunsaturated fatty acids, with a total of 28.7 grams per 100 grams, most of it in omega-3 fat, contrary to other nuts. Even though they are high in omega-3 fat, the omega-3 is in the ALA form (alpha-Linolenic acid), which is a short-chain form that need to be elongated to EPA and DHA to be useful for the body. The body's mechanisms to elongate ALA to EPA and DHA are very inefficient and ALA forms of omega-3 fats are not good sources of omega-3 for us. Unless you enjoy them, don't go out of your way to eat them as they are not a great choice to get more omega-3 compared to fatty fish and grass-fed ruminant meat.
