Good fat vs. bad fat

Fat is often considered as a enemy we have to ban to keep a good health and shape. But a perfectly balanced diet needs its part of - good! - fat.

What Is Healthy Fat?

The fat which is considered good for the health is unsaturated fat, predominantly contained in food made out of plants such as oils, nuts and seeds. The major dietary sources of unsaturated fats are avocados, olives, vegetable oils, fatty fishes like salmon, nuts and seeds. Unlike saturated fat (fatty meats, high-fat dairy foods, tropical oils...), they are no threat for your hearth or cholesterol and bring good nutrients to your body.

It is essential to differentiate the essential fats from the dispensable one!

Why are Good Fats Essential?

Unlike saturated fat (fatty meats, high-fat dairy foods, palm oil...), good fats are no threat for your health and bring good nutrients to your body. They even help reduce the risk of hearth diseases and lower cholesterol levels. Consider also that the brain cell membranes are made out of fat and it needs some to be in good health! Fat is one of the three essential macronutrients the body needs, along with carbohydrates and protein. A well-balanced diet should encompass healthful monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Make The Right Choices!

It is important to strike a good balance between the fats you need and those you do not! Use the right oils (oil or avocado rather than palm) and think of including nuts and seeds in your daily diet (like the Fruity Nutty©). Unsaturated fats are to be eaten in moderation. By creating Eathical, I wanted to help to achieve this good balance. Our recipes are created by nutritionists and with our Fruity Nutty© (made with fresh organic fruits, seeds, nuts and love!), you get all the nutrients to cover the body daily needs!
