I can sympathize with that. It's difficult to get an ideal ratio and stay on the horse. I'm just so convinced that a decent ratio and mostl likely net-intake is critical to overall health I've forced myself into close to a 1:1 ratio.
-If you're an egg-eater but can't afford the expensive free-range eggs, at least get conventional flax-fed ones. They'll be a little more expensive but they'll have a much better ratio and will have a lot more nutrients in general
-Perhaps add a plant-based omega 3 like chia seeds. Plant-based omega 3 is in no way a substitute for animal-based but it does have some utility in blocking the absorption of plant-based omega 6
-Favor beef, wild fish and lamb over chicken and pork. I understand that a lot of people can't find/afford pastured stuff but even regular conventional beef is relatively low in omega 6 compared to other conventional animal products.
-borage oil provides a lot of the same effects as EPA from fish oil with its GLA content.
-ginger and green-white teas are effective in down-regulating inflammatory eicosanoid production and preventing peroxidation in tissues
-if you must have nuts, make them macadamias.
