The Better Fats For You

Posted on March 14, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Here’s a list straight from the American Heart Association to help clear some concerns about where to find these monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Monounsaturated: Canola oil, olive oil, peanut oil, sunflower oil, avocados, and many nuts and seeds.





Polyunsaturated: A number of vegetable oils (soybean oil, corn oil and safflower oil), oily fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel,herring and trout), and most nuts and seeds.  The polyunsaturated fats are either from the omega-3 (for example, seafood) or omega-6 (for example, most vegetable oils) family.

Thanks for making this post. I feel like there is such a bad connotation toward “fat” in general in the diet world, but in the health world, they are recognized as being essential and beneficial. I think it’s definitely worth the effort to give up some of the greasy and everyday fats to try to work these into your diet.
