Healthy fats are essential for your health and help you maintain a healthy weight, decrease your risk of developing diabetes, and improve brain function. Some healthy options include avocado, olive oil, raw seeds, nuts, and nut butters. Below are some easy and tasty ways to include healthy fats in your diet:
- Get your daily dose of Vitamin E, fiber, and essential minerals with raw almonds, cashews, dry roasted peanuts, and walnuts.
- To limit cravings for sweets, enjoy a handful of nuts instead.
- Use olive oil based salad dressings to incorporate Omega-3 oils for a healthy heart and brain.
- Trail mix with yogurt and fresh fruit is a great way to include nuts in your diet. You can also enjoy a KIND Bar for an afternoon snack.
