Tuesday Talk, July 16th
Happy Tuesday friends! How's your week going? For this week's Tuesday Talk, let's talk about Fats. I don't cook with a ton of oil, I do like to spray my veggies with olive or avocado oil before I roast them. There's so many great options for adding some healthy fats into our diets. I love to add a little avocado to my smoothies or to my veggies bowls. I also love adding some sliced olives to my salads. I also love to snack on some nuts, although, those can add up calories and points-wise. I know that fats got a bad wrap for years. Flashback to Susan Powter and the low-fat craze in the 90's. Although, let's be honest, she wasn't completely on the wrong track when she said "read the labels, read the labels"! Those are some great things that we should all take to heart even now. Fats can be such a confusing topic and I can't honestly say that I'm 100% on top of it, but I am a firm believer in everything in moderation. I found this week, adding more olives and such into my diet this past week surely helped me manage to show the 1 pound loss this week. How do you fit those healthy fats into your diet?
Nuts (in a trail mix) and peanut butter (seriously just a small spoon straight up). Works for me for healthy fats and protein boosts!!!ReplyDelete
But I preach moderation for myself....so I know that if I’m eating healthy options my fat content should be ok!
