We are all constantly advised to avoid fat in foods we consume. Nevertheless, there are fats that are good for our health and work like fuel, which increase the body’s metabolism, leading to a better mood!
Raw fruits and dry fruits like coconut, avocados, almonds, walnuts, acai fruit, cashews, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, pecans and olives promote good heart health. These kinds of foods reduce cholesterol as they do not contain any of the harmful side effects associated with animal-based saturated fats.
Extra bonus: They come with protein, B vitamins and magnesium that enhance brain health!
