The Best Sources of Healthy Fats
When we think of fats, we don’t always think that we need more of these in our diet. Let’s be clear, there are good fats and bad fats in the foods that we eat each day. The bad fats are trans fats and saturated fats. These fats are found in packaged foods, palm oil, cake mixes, french fries, instant noodles and various other packaged items. The good fats are unsaturated and come mainly from natural, whole foods that are really easy to include in our diet. Increasing your unsaturated fats can reduce your cholesterol levels and reduce your risk of heart diseases. We get healthy fats from many sources such as proteins like eggs and fish, avocados, nuts, oils, seeds and, even cheese. Educating yourself in where you can get healthy fats can be a game changer in your diet and give your body much needed nutrients.
