Nutrition Label Savvy- Avoiding Deadly Trans Fats

Christine Avanti explains that there are four different types of fats:

 

1) Monounsaturated (MUFAs): These are good fats that actually help your body burn fat.  These fats are found in nuts, seeds, dark chocolate, avocados and olives.

 

2) Polyunsaturated (PUFAs):  These are good fats and they are found in most natural foods such as fish, nuts, seed, and plants.  They are very similar to MUFAs.

 

3) Saturated: These fats are thought to be bad because they supposedly clog and add plaque build-up in our arteries.  These fats are found in meat, butter, lard, and dairy products.  However, animals that are traditionally raised on grassy pastures such as free range cattle (natural herbivores) produce meat and butter this is good for our health.  Why?  Because these free range animals feed on green grass which causes them to produce meat and dairy products that are high in omega-3 fatty acids (good fats), vitamins A, D and beta carotene. 

 

4) Transfats: These are the worst kind of fats for humans to eat.  They clog arteries, stiffen blood vessels and wreck havoc in our cells which can lead to cancer. 

 

Here is how to avoid feeding yourself and your family transfats:

 

1) Read the “ingredients” list on the back of all your packaged foods.  If you see the words, “partially hydrogenated” don’t buy that food!  Partially hydrogenated oils are vegetable oils that have been through an industrial process where hydrogen is added to the vegetable oil to make is “stable” or “solid” at room temperature.  Food makers use this technology to prolong shelf life of baked goods, longer fry-life for cooking oils and a smoother texture “mouth feel” to the food.  “Partially hydrogenated” means that there is trans fats in that product.  This is sneaky because food manufactures are allowed to promote a food saying “No Trans Fats” as long as a food product has 0.5 grams of trans fats per serving. 

 

Feed your family good fats that come from nuts, seeds, avocado, olives, and dairy that comes from free range cattle such as organic butter. 

 

Check out Christine’s White Peach & Cherry cobbler made with organic butter (high in omega-3s, vitamins and minerals).
