Lots of HEALTHY fats happening here!
Why is fat important for us?
Not only can eating healthy fats lead to weight loss by increasing your metabolism, it can also improve your energy levels, balance your blood sugars, improve moods (60-70% of our brain is made up of fat!), reduce inflammation in the body, and support your hormones.
Plus, fat helps to keep us full since it contains more calories per gram compared to carbohydrates or protein.
This helps curb sugar cravings as well as helps you avoid the donuts in the breakroom or vending machine at work.
In addition, research has found that eating healthy fats can actually help improve your heart health by decreasing triglycerides and increasing HDL (the good cholesterol).
So what fats should we be eating?
Below is a list of healthy fats to embrace:
Butter and ghee (say good-bye to margarine!)
Chia and flaxseeds
Extra virgin olive oil
Grass-fed, organic dairy and meat
Nuts & seeds such as almonds, walnuts, pistachios, sunflower seeds
Nut butter such as almond, cashew, or natural peanut butter
