I started increasing my healthy fat intake about a year ago by consuming half of an avocado for breakfast (along with 1-2 scrambled free range eggs cooked in a small amount of coconut oil) and one tablespoon of coconut oil in a homemade soaked large flake oatmeal and chia seed muesli for a late breakfast or pre-workout meal (with almond milk and sometimes a half of a banana or a handful of raw almonds). I also consume one tablespoon of flaxseed oil daily in a health shake (recipe on blog) to optimize my omega-3 fatty acid intake.
I love how healthy fats make me feel. They leave me feeling light and fuller for longer; and curb my carbohydrate cravings. Emotional eating is something that I have struggled with on a daily basis so I’m happy to say that healthy fats have become a satisfying brain and body-nourishing daily solution for me.
I encourage you to read the following article and think about your healthy fat intake. And try consuming/using coconut oil if you haven’t already. I love it and I think you will too.
