We need fat in our diets. Fat is essential for the health and protection of our cells and organs, particularly the brain. We DO need to choose healthy fats, such as omega 3s, found in cold water fish, walnuts and flax, grass-fed butter, avocados/avocado oil, olives/olive oil. Here’s a myth that needs busting: Canola oil and vegetable oils are NOT healthy fats. They degrade to trans fat at high temperature cooking and oxidize very easily.
