June: Include healthy fats at every meal

This month, we’re challenging you to include healthy fats at every meal. Fats are important to our health in so many ways … reducing inflammation, supporting immune health, cardiovascular health, hormonal health, nervous system/brain health, blood sugar control, and much much more! Plus, fats make our meals more satisfying and help stave off cravings.

Listed below are sources that count toward your healthy fats we want you to include (in any amount) at every meal:

  • nuts (Brazil, almond, cashew, pecan, macadamia, etc.)
  • seeds (chia, hemp, flax, pumpkin, sunflower, etc.)
  • nut and seed butters 👆
  • avocados
  • olives
  • coconut
  • fatty fish (salmon, tuna, trout, herring, anchovies, sardines, etc.)
  • minimally processed oils (extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil, virgin coconut oil, etc.)
  • grass-fed ghee and butter
  • grass-fed meat and poultry (beef, chicken, turkey, pork, etc.)
  • grass-fed dairy products (full-fat yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese, etc.)
  • grass-fed eggs

Fats not included:

  • Fats from highly processed foods
  • Highly processed/refined oils and margarine
  • Deep fried foods
  • Trans fat
  • Fats derived from animals products that are not grass-fed

It is also important to get a wide variety of fats because each source offers it’s own unique type of fats and other beneficial nutrients and compounds. So, make sure you get a variety of fats from the list of healthy fats!
