You know what you “should” be eating for healthy quality fats to benefit health but now it is time to put it into action and get it in your home. I have created a “grocery list” that lets you do everything online in a snap.
If you need, review Eating Healthy Fats.
When shopping for healthy fats, make sure your fats are organic for purity. Raw, unrefined, and cold-processed usually are best because they have been exposed to the least amount of heat, destroying nutrients. Always look for non-GMO, and know the source of your food, to the best of your ability.
The better the quality of food, the more it nourishes our bodies so we feel better and therefore act better creating a better world to live in!!
There are as many ways to eat as there are people on this earth. I suggest you don’t get stuck on labeling your diet. Instead, get educated and eat what suits your particular body, regardless of labels. In case you are a strict vegan or vegetarian I tried to break this down for less confusion. If you are on a keto, paleo or whatever diet, all the below suggestions should meet your dietary needs.
Quality of food is far more important than labels.
Vegan Healthy Fats
Absolutely no animal products in a typical vegan diet.
Coconut Milk – Full Fat
Nuts & Seeds
Coconut: loosly defined = the coconut can be all three: a fruit, a nut, and a seed.
Black Sesame Seeds
Black Cumin Seeds
Nut & Seed Butters
Tahini Sesame Seed Butter
Test-Try Nut Butters
Cooking Spray Oil
Black Seed or Black Cumin Seed Oil
Mayo – the healthy kind
Primal Kitchen make good products (but they are NOT organic)
Vegetarian Healthy Fats
Dairy and eggs may be included in a typical vegetarian diet. Lacto vegetarians may eat dairy, but avoid eggs.
Ghee is clarified butter with the casein protein solids removed. It is the casein protein that people are generally sensitive to when they react to dairy products. Therefore, most people, even with a dairy sensitivity will do fine consuming ghee. Get the facts on ghee and use your own best judgment.
Essential Fatty Acids EFA’s Supplements
Cod Liver Oil
If you refuse to take a tablespoon a day then take 2-4 pills daily and you won’t taste it.
