July Nutrition Challenge Tip of the Day:
What fats are good fats? Contrary to popular belief, dietary fats don’t necessarily make you fat. Overconsumption and the intake of highly processed fats like safflower, cottonseed, sunflower seed, soy, and peanut oils tend to be the main culprit of dietary fat issues. So what fats should you be eating? Raw tree nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews, macadamias), avocados, coconuts, and olives are great sources of healthy fats that you can take in in their natural forms. One of the best sources of fats come from wild-caught fish like salmon, grass-fed beef, or pasture raised eggs. The natural fats in these foods are incredibly high in Omega-3 fatty acids which help reduce inflammation and help the transport of triglycerides out of the blood stream, helping to prevent high blood pressure and associated risks. Fats are good for your body when taken in from quality sources; don’t fall for the low-fat fallacy.
