      How do you choose healthy fats?

      Fat has become quite a villain to most of us. However, not all fat is bad, there are healthy fats as well and our body needs them too. Fat is a kind of nutrient that enriches our body and is as essential as nutrients such as protein or Vitamins.

      Omega-3 fats

      Omega-3 fatty acids are a kind of polyunsaturated fat  which offer immense health benefits. Though there are many different types of omega-3s: EPA and DHA which are abundant in fish and algae are considered the best.

      Salmon, mackerel, anchovies, sardines, trout, tuna, halibut, mussels, oyster and so on are the best sources of Omega-3. Vegetarian sources include algae such as seaweed, chia seeds, flax seeds, walnuts, kale, spinach, kidney beans, mayonnaise, edamame and so on.

      Avocados

      Most fruits are packed with carbs, but the avocado is am exception to this rule. It contains a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid which is very healthy. It’s also rich in potassium and fiber.

      Cheese

      This is very nutritious and filled with protein, in fact just one single thick slice of cheese has 6.7 grams of protein, the same as a glass of milk. This also is abundant in powerful fatty acids which have diverse health benefits including reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.

      Whole eggs

      Whole eggs were considered unhealthy for a long time because the yolks tend to be quite high in Cholesterol and fat.  They are abundant in vitamins and minerals and one of the most nutrient-dense foods ever. They have a little bit of almost every single nutrient that our bodies need. They also have powerful antioxidants which help preserve the eyes from degeneration, and plenty of choline which is a brain nutrient.

      Nuts

      Nuts are highly nutritious and rich in healthy fats and fiber and are good plant-based sources of protein, vitamin E and magnesium.
