Why Eating Healthy Fats is Important for the Menopause

Here is a list of healthy fats to include for Menopausal health:

🥑Avocado: Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fats, which are beneficial for heart health.

🫒Olive Oil: Extra virgin olive oil is an excellent source of monounsaturated fats and is commonly used in Mediterranean cuisine.

🌰Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, and hemp seeds are all high in healthy fats, including omega-3 fatty acids.

🍣Fatty Fish: Salmon, mackerel, sardines, trout, and tuna are examples of fatty fish that are abundant in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health.

🥥Coconut Oil: While coconut oil is high in saturated fats, it contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are metabolized differently and may offer certain health benefits.

🍫Dark Chocolate: Dark chocolate with a high cocoa content is a source of monounsaturated fats and antioxidants. It should be consumed in moderation due to its calorie density.

🥜Nut Butter: Natural nut butters like almond butter or peanut butter provide healthy fats, protein, and fiber. Opt for varieties without added sugars or hydrogenated oils.

🌻Seeds: Besides flaxseeds and chia seeds, other seeds like pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds are rich in healthy fats and provide additional nutrients.

🫒Olives: Olives and olive products, such as olive tapenade or olive oil, are sources of monounsaturated fats and antioxidants.

🥚Eggs: While eggs contain some saturated fat, they are also a good source of unsaturated fats and are packed with nutrients.

❗️Remember, while these fats are considered healthy, moderation is key. It’s important to incorporate them into a balanced diet rather than consuming excessive amounts.
