The Truth About Fats

5 Healthy Fats 

1. Avocados: Rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, avocados also provide essential nutrients like potassium, fiber, and vitamins E and K.

2. Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, walnuts, chia seeds, and flaxseeds are excellent sources of healthy fats, such as omega-3 fatty acids, along with protein, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals.

3. Fatty Fish: Salmon, mackerel, trout, and sardines are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health, brain function, and reducing inflammation.

4. Olive Oil: Extra virgin olive oil is a staple of the Mediterranean diet and contains monounsaturated fats, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties.

5. Coconut Oil: While controversial due to its high saturated fat content, coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are believed to offer various health benefits, including improved cognitive function and weight management.

6. Nut Butter: Natural peanut, almond, or cashew butter can be a nutritious source of healthy fats when consumed in moderation. Look for varieties without added sugars or hydrogenated oils.

Adding these sources of healthy fats into your diet can contribute to overall well-being and support various bodily functions, plus they taste great. Remember to enjoy them as part of a balanced diet.
