With recent studies finding more evidence to support that fats aren’t as unhealthy as we thought they were, it has become more important for us to learn which fats are the best for our body. The bad fats are typically called saturated fats and trans fats, which are typically found in processed food. These are the fats that can raise bad cholesterol and, ultimately, contribute to heart disease and heart attacks.
Then there are the good fats. These fats come in two forms – polyunsaturated and monounsaturated. These fats can be found in various forms. From omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon to the oleic fatty acid found in avocados, there are a bunch of food options out there that can fulfill our daily intake of healthy fats.
