Did you know???
60 % of our brain is made of fat!
Eating fat is a good thing, just the right kind of fat. Some people thrive off a high (quality) fat diet like keto or paleo. While others need to add a little a day to feed their brain and reproductive organs.
One thing for sure,is that to many American's eat the wrong kind of fat. This leads to a host of health issues.
You can walk into any grocery store and you’ll see packages labeled with the NO FAT/LOW FAT claims. We know that not all oils and fats are created equal. Heavily processed fats and oils used in packaged foods are those fats that our bodies do not know what to do with. Fat from high-quality oils and whole foods are used by our bodies to help keep metabolism steady, nourish our skin, hair and nails and keep enough healthy “grease” in our engine to have the body’s functions work fluidly.
Some of the healthy fats include extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, unrefined sesame oil, ghee (clarified butter), whole nuts and seeds or nut butter, the fats in whole foods such as avocados and coconuts and the high-quality fats in cold-water fish such as salmon and tuna.
What fats are you getting on a daily basis? I get avocado, mct oil, coconut oil, cacao nibs and seeds on a daily basis.
