The Skinny on Dietary Fats!
The benefits of healthy fats are numerous: Good fats are a wonderful source of long-burning fuel for your body, particularly the heart. When you're asleep, your body will burn its own fat for fuel. Your brain is mostly fat; it keeps your thinking clear. Fats help regulate healthy hormone levels. Fats keep you in a good mood and help stave off depression. Fats keep you feeling full after a meal and absorb nutrients from food. Fat makes your skin glow. Fats help you sleep better. Fats are not the enemy. Fats will not make you fat!
- For a fish oil pill, Radiant Life Pure Krill Oil capsules are the way to go. They are a lovely source of omega-3s in the form of EPA and DHA, as well as vitamins A, D and a host of antioxidants. Unlike the fatty acids found in other fish oils, the omega-3s in Radiant Life Krill Oil are present in a bioavailable phospholipid form, which allows them to be easily absorbed by the body and highly effective at nourishing the cells.
Many low-quality fish oils contain other added or adulterated oils, like soybean oil (an Omega 6 oil!) Throw those out!!!
For a great treat using coconut oil, see my Au Natural Nutrition recipe for chocolate Crunch Cups. You'll love 'em!
Have you seen my recipe for making ghee (clarified butter)?
It's a wonderful high-heat fat. It's like delicious, rich, concentrated butter with the dairy/milk proteins taken out, for those that are dairy-free, like me. -Jenny
