Eating fat is an essential part of every diet. You want to make sure that you are consuming HEALTHY fats – not the fat from a donut!

Avocados are one of the healthiest fruits you can consume. They’re rich in monounsaturated fats, packed vitamin E, and chock-full of healthy protein.

Butter — preferably raw or from grass-fed, organic sources. The omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids found in butter help your brain function properly and improve skin health. Butter’s rich in fat-soluble vitamins and trace minerals, including beneficial selenium. It’s lactose- and casein-free with high levels of vitamin K2.

Coconut Oil can be consumed and be used on your skin and hair. It’s rich in medium-chain fatty acids and high amounts of natural saturated fats. It increases good cholesterol, promotes heart health, is an anti-inflammatory, and helps reduce arthritis.
