Fats Are Essential
While the media has made us afraid of fats, they are actually required in order for our bodies to function properly. For years during the low fat, no fat craze I thought fats were bad and I stopped eating some of my favorite foods, nuts and olives. Now I’ve learned that fats are good for us and that our bodies require about 30% fats in our diet each and every day, for each and every meal.
Eating the right fats helps to:
• Reduce inflammation
• Reduce risk of heart health
• Decrease your risk of diabetes
• Boost brain health
• Reduce joint pain
Plant based fats like nuts, seeds, avocados and olives are a healthy fat source.
