Getting to Know “Healthy Fats” with Susan Bowerman
Thinking of fat as healthy seems to go against nearly every piece of nutrition advice you’ve ever heard. But there are certain types of fats that are considered healthy and are actually essential to the body. I recently read an article by Susan Bowerman on DiscoverGoodNutrition.com that gives a useful overview of what good fats are and how to work them into a healthy, balanced diet that supports heart health. I especially like her food tips in the second half of the article.

Enjoy reading, and be sure to leave Susan a comment and tell her what you thought of the article. And for more on a diet that includes plenty of good fats, read my post, “6 Reasons to Eat Mediterranean.”
