Omega Fats

Omega Fats

I am frequently asked for examples of heart-healthy fats. Even as a dietitian who talks about nutrition regularly, I tend to get the fats mixed up myself! If you are trying to eat heart healthy foods, look to omega-3 fatty acids. Omega fats can help lower cholesterol, a substance linked to heart health. Here are some healthy sources:

– Fish (especially fatty fish like salmon)
– Olive Oil (cook your vegetables with a little olive oil)
– Flaxseeds (enjoy them on your cereal)
– Avocado
– Soybeans
– Canola Oil
– Walnut Oil
– Walnuts
– Leafy Greens
