Food trends come and go, and I'm no stranger to trying something new, especially when it comes to food and nutrition! A lot of people ask me what I eat on a regular basis, and if you really want to know, just check my instagram because I frequently post my meals there (when I don't engulf them before I realize I haven't taken a "pretty" pic, lol). Some of you may be surprised to see what I eat.. especially when it comes to FAT... ooh, big, bad ol' fat! I said it!
With growing research, some common sense and a look back at history- it is safe to say that saturated fat isn't the big bad monster we were once led to believe it was. And believe me, I am far from the first person to say this. In fact, some of the most respected and knowledgable doctors are saying the same. Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Mark Hyman, and Dr. Andrew Weil are just a few. The argument on fat is far from over, but what's important to understand is the SOURCE of which it comes. The quality of that source is paramount, and literally makes all the difference in the composition of the fat. For example, grass- fed butter and beef contain much more heart- healthy omega 3- fatty acids as well as linoleic fatty acids which aid in weight loss.
I guess you can say I enjoy fat a LOT more these days, especially from sources like grass- fed beef, wild- caught fish, organic pastured chicken, grass- fed butter and ghee, coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, avocado and avocado oil.
