Articles and Tips for a WELL Life
Our future is a result of what we do TODAY, not tomorrow!
So, is fat good or bad for you? The answer is BOTH. You see, not all fats are created equal. Let me break it down for you...
Our bodies need fat for insulation, vitamins and mineral absorption. It is also needed to protect our organs. High-quality fats can steady our metabolism, balance hormones, eliminate cravings and provide lubrication to keep the body functioning properly. These are only a few of the amazing benefits of eating healthy fats.
Heavily processed, hydrogenated "trans" fats used in prepared and packaged foods can be extremely damaging to the body. They can compromise the cardiovascular system, immune system and contribute to behavior problems. They can also lead to weight gain, skin breakouts, high blood pressure, and liver strain.
What Fats are Healthy Fats?
How to use Healthy Fats
Did you know this?
Our fruits & veggies need healthy fats! Fruits & vegetables contain carotenoids, which are powerful antioxidants that help to calm inflammation in our bodies. Our bodies can’t absorb carotenoids without pairing it with a healthy fat. Reducing inflammation can lower your risk of many of our ailments, including cancer and heart disease. So, try adding diced tomatoes to your avocado toast or throw nuts, seeds or avocado into your smoothie and salads, so that your body can better absorb the valuable nutrients in our fruits & veggies.
Bottom line, we need healthy fats to be healthy and to maintain a healthy weight. So, start adding some of the good fats to every meal and stop eating the unhealthy fats. You're body will thank you!
