Tip: Healthy and Unhealthy Fats

Trans fatty acids and saturated fats have been shown to make brain cells hard and rigid.

Healthy vs Unhealthy FatsTrans fatty acids found in margarine, processed baked goods, fried foods and saturated fats found in meat and full fat dairy products have been shown to make brain cells hard and rigid. These fats also interfere with your brain’s ability to process information quickly.

Call to Action:

  • Monounsaturated fats are healthy fats. Olive and hemp oil and avocados are forms of monounsaturated fats.
  • Cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil is a healthy alternative for butter on potatoes, grains, vegetables, and bread.
  • Studies have also shown that if you replace unhealthy fats such as margarine, shortening and conventional vegetable oil with coconut oil, you will store less body fat and increase your metabolism.

To your wellness,
