Dietary Fat: The Good vs. the Bad

Fat has a bad rap, but we need it in our diets to ensure that our bodies function correctly and have enough energy throughout the day. It’s essential for digestion, transporting and absorbing vitamins and chemicals in our bodies. That being said, some fats are better than others. Unsaturated fats are an essential part of a healthy diet. Saturated fats should be avoided, and Trans-fatty Acids have negative health effects. This post compares dietary fats so you can be sure you’re only consuming the fats you need.

National Nutrition Month: Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day

March is National Nutrition Month, which means we have a whole month dedicated to evaluating the foods you are eating and focus on how you can improve your health with nutrition. We could all afford to improve our diet in some way. This month, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics developed the theme Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day. It encourages each person to find the right diet for their individual needs. Follow these suggestions and evaluate your diet to see what kind of changes you can make.
