We all pretty much know about the importance of Omega 3's in our diet. I take fish oil and sprinkle Ground Flax seed in my soup etc. I also take a tablespoon of extra virgin cold pressed olive oil daily.
I have read most of us get too much Omega 6's in our diet and not enough Omega 3's.
Food Sources of Omega 7's in the diet:

Seabuckthorn is undeniably the most potent source of omega-7s on the planet. However, since it can only be found grown in areas such as the Himalayas picking up some sea buckthorn at the local grocery store may not be an option. Luckily enough, omega-7 supplements give you seabuckthorn.
Macadamia nuts despite being grown natively in Australia can be bought almost anywhere in addition to being used as an ingredient to many snacks. Other than sea-buckthorn, macadamia nuts act as an excellent source of palmitoleic acid.
Cheese and dairy may not compared with top omega-7 sources like sea buckthorn and macadamia nuts however it still is a source for natural palmitoleic acid. Cheddar cheese is the most potent variety of cheese with omega-7 fatty acid.
Oils butter and fats are high in palmitoleic acid. Although eating whale blubber may not be a viable option, there is always lard and butter you can count on. Remember omega-7 fats when thinking about fattening up for winter.
Avocado has a rap for being fat. That's okay because it's healthy fat. In addition to many other essential nutrients contained in avocados, there are omega-7 fatty acids. No wonder why it is used in skin care. It must be those omega-7s.
Omega 7's play a distinct role in our overall health and especially for type 2 diabetics:
