6 Healthy Fats & How to Incorporate them into Your Day

January 18, 2019

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. 

Here are some of the downsides to a low-fat diet:
  1. Decreased concentration and brain fog
  2. Hormone disruption
  3. Feelings of “hanger”
  4. Fat free-products are usually packed with sugar and processed ingredients

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.

Here are 6 healthy fats to incorporate into your day (plus how to do it!): 

1. MCT Oils and Powders

The easiest way to add MCTs in your day? In your coffee, of course! Try it out in powdered form, like Organika’s new MCT Oil Powder, or the Enhanced Collagen Boost with MCT Oil Powder.

2. Avocado

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!

3. Nuts and Seeds

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.

4. Pure Coconut Oil

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.

5. Wild-Caught Fish

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.

6. Ethically Raised Meat

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.
