healthy fats (and why you shouldn’t avoid fats)

DON’T FEAR FATS! ✋

While low-fat diets were once promoted as the holy-grail to weight loss, studies now show that low-fat diets are not effective for weight loss or for overall health. Quality fats are a vital part of a healthy diet as they are necessary for proper absorption of essential vitamins, help regulate hormones and mood, improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation.

So don’t be afraid to incorporate healthy fats into your meals! ☝Here are some great sources:

 •Olive oil, coconut oil, flax seed oil, etc.
•Nuts, seeds & nut butters, like walnuts, almond butter, tahini, hemp & chia seeds
•Organic Butter / Ghee
•Avocado
•Wild salmon & Whole eggs
•Dark chocolate

By adding fats to your meals, not only will your food taste more delicious, but you’ll also leave the table feeling more satisfied!

 

Be well,
