Unsaturated fats such as those found in olive oil, avocados, nuts and seeds can reduce your cholesterol levels and decrease your risk of heart disease and stroke. A recent study they found that people who eat tree nuts—almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts and pistachios—are less likely to be obese than those who don’t. Because nuts can also be high in calories, just have about handful a day.
Healthy fats can also make foods more filling. Researchers found that adding half an avocado to lunch significantly decreased hunger over the next three hours, according to a Nutrition Journal study. Slice avocado into salads and soups, or spread it on a sandwich instead of mayo.
Health & Happiness
Remember.....It’s always easier (and more enjoyable!) when we try something new with a buddy. Enlist the support of a friend or family member and help each other to make healthier choices. Swap recipes, try out new restaurants together, or send each other home with leftovers from healthy dinners. Having a “health coach” can also help you to feel supported in your decision to eat healthier and stay on track.
