Master the FATS of Life
Choose foods that are as low in fat as possible then add back limited amounts of the omega 3 “good” fat found in nuts, seeds, olive oil and salmon. By limiting the amount of “bad” saturated animal fat and “ugly” partially hydrogenated trans fat, you can:
- lower your risk of heart disease
- lower your risk of cancer
- control your weight
- have more energy
To learn more about the “ugly” trans fats and what you can do to limit these fats as well as reduce the “bad” saturated fats, click and read:
“Zero Trans Fats –The rest of the story.”
True or False? Nachos are a fattening appetizer and could never pass as a “healthy dinner.”
Answer: TRUE for most restaurant nachos.
FALSE for your own homemade!
Sitting down to a mounded plate of nachos covered with beans, cheese and sour cream sounds like a major binge, right? Not at all, thanks to all the new low-fat foods available and proper portion control. Baked tortilla chips can count as a healthful serving of grain. Add vegetables, beans, salsa and nonfat sour cream or nonfat plain yogurt, and you have a most delicious, satisfying and completely guilt-free meal!
Compare a serving of my Guiltless Nachos Supreme at only 430 calories and 8 grams of fat to a typical restaurant serving of Nachos Supreme packing 800 calories and 55 grams of fat!
Healthful Food Manufacturers are like Treasured Friends
As a nutritionist, I have maintained a watchful eye for good foods containing NO partially hydrogenated fats with healthful portions of good fats, as well as low in sodium for years. Finding a company I know I can trust to have always used the right ingredients because it’s the right thing to do is like finding a treasured friend for life. Eden Foods is that treasured friend for me because I know they have my best health in mind with everything they make. Check out their products and you too can discover a faithful treasured friend in Eden just as I have.
