Eat More FAT.

Have you planned out your good fats for the day?

You want to eat MORE monounsaturated fats or polyunsaturated fats!  These kinds of fats will help lower cholesterol, prevent belly fat, strengthen your immune system and boost your mood!  Your intake of fat should be around 30% of your diet, and it helps your body absorb essential vitamins and minerals.

Take this into consideration when choosing what to eat today!
Avocados have 35% more potassium than bananas - what!  That is crazy, forget bananas and all their hype over potassium!  What you need is a dose of AVO!  Avocados are also rich in folic acid, vitamin k and high in fiber!

You can also find monounsaturated fats in olive oil, olives, almonds, cashews and peanuts (including peanut butter!).

Polyunsaturated fats can be found in foods such as salmon and flaxseeds (those are the ones that can strengthen your immune system and boost your mood!).
Moral of the story : EAT FAT.

Have questions about the types of fat to eat?  Just leave a comment and I'll get back to you!
