Health Tip: Healthy Fats? They Exist
(HealthDay News) -- All fats shouldn't be treated equal. Your body craves certain "healthy" fats, which are unsaturated fats mostly found in plant-based foods.
The womenshealth.gov website says these foods are good sources of "healthy" fats:
Olive, canola and peanut oils.
Most types of nuts.
Safflower and sunflower oils.
Corn oil, soybean oil and cottonseed oil.
Fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel and trout, as well as flaxseed, all of which are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
