At one point in time, high-fat diets were frowned on. Remember those 0% yogurts, and no-fat salad dressings? Ya, us too. And even today, many people still follow a low-fat diet with the belief that they will lose weight, or lower their cholesterol. But many people have now realized that a diet high in healthy fats is essential for the overall maintenance of good health.
With the rise of the ketogenic diet, many people have opened their eyes to the importance of fats in their diet and how they are actually an essential part of keeping everything in working like a well oiled machine.
1. MCT Oils and Powders
This seems to be the queen of all healthy fats, and can go with nearly anything. Try it in a smoothie, on toast, topped on eggs, make guacamole, or eat it straight with a little bit of hummus!
Not only are nuts and seeds a source of healthy fats, but they also tend to be high in fibre and each contain their own host of different minerals.
If you’ve checked out our blog about MCT oil, you know that it’s actually derived from coconut oil. Coconut oil not only has beneficial fats, but is also praised for its anti-microbial properties.
Wild-caught, fatty fish is high in Omega-3s, which are essential to ensure that you balance your Omega-6 fatty acids. When you consume too much omega-6, which is typically found in many processed foods, you put yourself at risk for cardiovascular issues.
If you do consume meat, opt for antibiotic and hormone-free, as well as grass-fed and free-range meats. While they may cost more, these meats are a more sustainable option and won’t bring in disruptive substances.
