Self-Care Tip: Eating Healthy Fats

2020_Icon_Self-Care-3.png

Not all fats are bad. Foods with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are important for your brain and heart.

Limit foods with trans fats, which increase the risk of heart disease. Good sources of healthy fats include olive oil, nuts, seeds, certain types of fish, and avocados.

Try this:

  • Top lean meats with sliced avocado or try some avocado in your morning smoothie.

  • Sprinkle nuts or seeds (like slivered almonds or pumpkin seeds) on soups or salads.

  • Add a fish with healthy fats, like salmon or tuna, into your meals twice a week.

  • Swap processed oils (like canola or soybean oil) for oils that are cold-pressed, like extra-virgin olive oil and sesame oil.
