Healthy Fats Facts

Does it ever drive you nuts that candy companies will slap a “Fat Free!” starburst on their packages, tempting sorry dieters to indulge in a snack that is anything but “guilt free?”  I can’t help the sarcastic smirk on my face when I see the words “Fat Free!” emblazoned across sugar-filled indulgences.

What’s the deal with fats?  People are so afraid of consuming fat, likely because they assume they will then become fat.  You are what you eat, right?  Not necessarily, my friends.

The Fat Full Fall series at Kitchen Stewardship is PACKED with research and information and has remained one of the most widely referenced for years.

Here are the topics covered in the Fat Full Fall series

Previous to this series, a few of our Monday Missions touched on fats.  Feel free to review:

Omega 3s: Americans need more of them, plain and simple.  Read up on health benefits plus the scoop on salmon and flax, two big ways to increase your omega 3s.
