The Skinny on Healthy Fat

Updated: Nov 26, 2019


Is fat good or bad for me?

For years we were told to eat low fat or avoid fat. No wonder there is so much confusion today. One of my roles as a health coach is to help you navigate through all the confusion.

I encourage adding healthy fats with every meal. If you want to prevent feeling shaky or cranky between meals, stay full for longer and keep your blood sugar stable and balanced, then this is key.

Why do we need fat?

  • Insulation

  • Vitamin and mineral absorption

  • Protect our organs

  • Steady our metabolism

  • Keep hormones level

  • Nourish our hair, skin and nails

  • Keep our body lubricated

Some examples of Healthy Fats:

  • Avocados

  • Eggs

  • Olives

  • Nuts and seeds

  • Coconut

  • Almond butter

  • Tahini

  • High quality organic oils

  • Ghee

Here is an easy and healthy fat recipe for you:

Avocado Dip

Prep time-3 minutes

Makes 1 cup

Ingredients -

  • 1 large peeled and pitted avocado

  • 2/3 cup plain yogurt, coconut yogurt (if dairy free, can get at Sprouts)

  • 1 diced tomato

  • a squirt of lemon or lime juice

  • a dash or two of cayenne pepper

  • sea salt and black pepper

Directions -

Mash the avocado until smooth. Add yogurt, cayenne and blend until smooth. Add sea salt and pepper. Serve chilled with raw veggies. I prefer carrots or celery. I have used peppers and also made gluten free tortilla chips by using a gluten free tortilla, sliced and use a little oil and sea salt before baking in oven.
