What’s So Healthy About Fats?

We have all heard we are supposed to limit our fat intake if we want to pursue a healthy lifestyle. But not all fats are bad. In fact, there are “healthy fats.” These healthy fats contain omega-3 fatty acids, which keep our hearts healthy. These healthy fats include:

  • Fish
  • Avocado
  • Seeds
  • Nuts
  • Olive oil
  • Eggs
  • Flaxseed
  • Beans

Omega-3 fortified foods are also an option if you’re looking for ways to add healthy fats to your diet. But, even though the fats in these foods are called healthy fats, you still don’t want to over do it. So, it’s important to be aware of how much one serving is of each of these types of foods.

Which of these foods can you add to your diet?
