  • Not all fats are considered harmful or unhealthy in our diet. Your body actually needs fats because it gives you energy, helps your body intake in certain vitamins, and some fats are important to keep your heart healthy. You just need to know what fats too choose more often than others.

  • Choose unsaturated fats, such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (omega-3 and omega-6) more often than saturated and trans fat. Unsaturated fats include: olive, canola, safflower, sunflower oils, nuts, avocados, non-hydrogenated margarines and fatty fish. On the contrary, saturated and trans fat can be harmful to your heart. They are usually found in foods that are solid at room temperature such as: butter, shortening and beef/pork fat.

  • Aim for 2-3 tablespoons of unsaturated fats each day. This is the recommendation to keep your heart healthy!
