Celebrating National Healthy Fats Day!

Mar 19, 2024

 Nourish Your Body with Good Fats

Happy National Healthy Fats Day! Fats often get a bad rap, but the truth is, they are essential for our health and well-being. From nourishing our brains to supporting hormone function, healthy fats play a crucial role in keeping our bodies functioning at their best! So today, let’s take a moment to appreciate the role of healthy fats in our diets.

What are healthy fats?

Healthy fats, also known as unsaturated fats, can be found in foods like avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oil. These fats are liquid at room temperature and can help lower cholesterol levels, reduce inflammation, and improve heart health. One of the most well-known healthy fats is omega-3 fatty acids, found in fatty fish like salmon, as well as flaxseeds and walnuts.

Another important source of healthy fats is monounsaturated fats. These fats can help improve insulin sensitivity and reduce the risk of heart disease.

How to Incorporate Healthy Fats in Your Diet

Not all fats are created equal. While healthy fats are beneficial, it’s best to limit your intake of unhealthy fats, such as trans fats and saturated fats, found in processed food and red meat. These fats can increase your risk of heart disease and other health issues. So, how can you incorporate more healthy fats into your diet? Start by adding a serving of fatty fish to your meals a few times a week. You can also snack on nuts and seeds or use olive oil in your cooking a salad dressing.

National Healthy Fats Day is a reminder to prioritize our health and nourish our bodies with the good fats they need. Here’s to celebrating healthy fats and the many benefits they bring to our lives!
