Fat Is Good For You

Healthy fats found in avocados, nuts, wild-caught fish, lard, extra virgin olive oil, ghee, coconut oil, pasture-raised eggs, and grass-fed meat are vital to optimal health!! Some of the benefits of adding these fats in your diet include:⠀

🥑 providing a source of sustained energy vs. the blood sugar ups and downs that come with more carbohydrate/sugar-heavy source of energy⠀
🥑 building blocks of cell membranes. You want healthy cells membranes to help make sure vital nutrients are coming in and debris is getting out!⠀
🥑 aid in the absorption of important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K⠀⠀
🥑 the best part…they make food taste better!⠀

Yes, you want to stay away from these adulterated fats:⠀

Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats/oils found in:
❌ margarine
❌ shortening
❌ fried foods
❌ coffee creamers⠀

AND⠀

Heavily processed vegetable oils like:⠀
❌ Soybean Oil⠀
❌ Canola Oil⠀
❌ Safflower Oil⠀
❌ Sunflower Oil⠀
❌ Pam ⠀

These fats are unstable, rancidify easily, and cause inflammation, oxidative stress, and digestive issues that lead to chronic illness.
