Fats are an essential part of a healthy diet, but not all fats are created equal. Do you know which fats should be included in a heart-healthy diet and which ones to avoid?
Answer true or false to the following statements for some insight into the types of fat various foods contain and whether you’re better off eating them or finding a healthier alternative.
Salmon, flaxseeds and walnuts are heart-healthy because they contain omega-3’s.
Avocados should be avoided if you’re eating for a healthy heart because they contain a lot of fat.
Foods with saturated or trans fats, like red meat and processed foods, should be limited or avoided because they raise LDL levels.
Avoiding trans fat is easy. Just read the Nutrition Facts section on food labels to see if they’re in your food.
