Instead of thinking of this as a belated #tuesdaytip, let's pretend it's an early #thursdaytip... #Myth: Fat is bad for you
#Truth: Not all fat is bad for you. Fat has many important functions in the body. Your brain and central nervous system live off of fat. Fat helps with the absorption of vitamins A, E, D and K and can also be used as a source of energy.
#Tip: Try to incorporate plant-based sources of fat into your meals and snacks. You want fats that are high in Omega 3s to help you fight inflammation, increase recover after workouts and increase your HDL (good cholesterol). Here are some examples of good fats: avocado, coconut oil, almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews, and nut butters.
