Healthy Living

nutrition month

March is national nurition month, and Suzy Eats is asking all of our readers to try and eat more monounsaturated fats this month and less saturated fats!!! For more than 50 years, researchers have been trying to determine the role that fat plays in the development of heart disease. Did you know that the QUALITY of fat is the most important determinant??? Fats are NOT all the same.

Review of the “fats” data has shown us that consuming monounsaturated fat can actually help to reduce the risk of heart disease. In fact, national US guidelines may soon recommend increasing your intake of monounsaturated fat by replacing it for your saturated fat intake.

We know for sure that people who consume the Mediterranean Diet have lower risks of diabetes and heart disease. We also know that not all fats are the same. Consuming more monounsaturated fat can also help to improve cholesterol levels,blood pressure, insulin sensitivity and regulate your blood sugar.  Newer reserach actually suggests that monounsaturated fats can help diminsh the risk of obesity!!!!!!!!

So now the question is what are some foods that contain monounsaturated fats and low levels of saturated fats?????
