Do not forget your healthy fats in your nutrition pantry. When I talk to people about what they eat, i don’t generally hear them say much about fats. In fact many health advocates (or so-called) are still saying eat fat free this and fat-free that. I say, don’t do that. Include nature’s fats such as: avocados, olives, nuts, seeds, coconut, coconut oil. These kind of fats help your body metabolize fats—meaning helping with the process of carrying triglycerides out of storge (fat storage). Salty snacks aren’t the answer though; as they cause you to overeat. A handful of nuts is plenty. A heaping tablespoon of peanut butter is great. Guacamole or hummus as a sandwich spread is perfect.
Supplementing with essential oils (yes, more fats) will give your body more of what ot needs. Take in those omega-3’s from fish oil or borage seed oil. Our bodies do not produce them; You can also get them from oily fish (wild-caught has the omega-3’s), walnuts, tuna, flax, hemp, and chia. Your body will be happier; cravings wlll lessen, and your hair and skin, and brain will be healthier. The general satiety level will increase also.
Happy Fat indulging!
