One of the myths I’m always trying to dispel is that fat is unhealthy. Most people think those high-fat foods are the reason their pants are fitting a little tighter. They’re not far off, the diet of the average American does contain a lot of unhealthy, high-fat foods, but also a lot of carbohydrates. In this type of diet, the body breaks down the glucose found in carbs and stores the fat from these fatty foods. However, the ketogenic diet, which eliminates nearly all carbohydrates, champions the consumption of “healthful” fats, and rightly so.This helps dentifies those fats that you should make sure to incorporate into your diet.
GHEE (clarified butter):
In Ayurveda, ghee is said to quell inflammation and it also contains immune-enhancing phenolic antioxidants.
*Use 2 teaspoons of ghee when cooking or sautéing onions or garlic.
ORGANIC COCONUT OIL:
Coconut oil has been shown to help raise HDL (the good cholesterol) and lower LDL (the bad cholesterol) as well as reduce weight circumference.
*A teaspoon of coconut oil adds flavor to sautéed broccoli or a Thai coconut milk curry. Have you tried coconut oil pulling? If not check out my blog- another great way to included this amazing oil!
