Better Fats

Better Fats

The skinny on fats.

There are four different types of fats unsaturated, saturated, omega three fatty acids and trans fats. They all play an important role in longevity by lowering cholesterol, inflammation and increase the duration of energy. 20-35% of our daily diet should be fat.

  1. Omega three fatty acids can be broken down in to two types EPA & DHA and are crucial for brain health, cellular function and hormone production. Aim to eat two servings of nuts or seeds (especially walnuts and flax) per week of which contain ALA a third type of Omega. 
  1. Saturated fats get a bad reputation, but are good in moderation and mostly found in animal fats and dairy products. 
  2. Unsaturated fats which can be broken down into monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which are plant based, and found in avocados, walnuts, almonds, pistachios, olive oil, safflower oil 

Nuts have on average 45 grams of fat per cup. Nutritionists love pistachios because they are shelled which make you eat them slower and help control portion sizes. Pistachios contain in one cup 13 grams of fat. 

One cup of olives have 15grams of fat and many beneficial nutrients such as hydroxytrosol, a polynutrient that has been linked to preventing cancer, bone loss, aids as a antihistamine on a cellular level. 

Dark chocolate (three sticks) counts as 9 grams of fat, half is saturated fat, but also contains healthy amount of nutrients like vitamin A, B, E, Calcium, Iron, Potassium, magnesium, and flavonoids. 1oz of dark chocolate has 3grams of fiber. The higher the cocoa in dark chocolate the better.

Three ounces of Tofu or soybeans is equivalent to 5-6grams of fat and is a good source of monounsaturated and polysaturated fats. A solid plant based protein is low in sodium and includes 1/4 of your daily calcium. 

Sunflower seeds and chia seeds are great to sprinkle on salads or add to smoothies. Chia seeds are loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, essential minerals and antioxidants. 

  One whole egg contains 5grams of fat. 1.5 grams of the egg are saturated, while the whole egg contains choline a good source of vitamin B which regulates brain, heart and muscle movement. 

Among saturated fats: full fat milk contains less sugar, and 8 grams of fat, 5 being saturated fat.Yum!

Full fat yogurt contain active cultures which help regulate the gut and in one cup is about 8 grams of fat, 11 grams of carbohydrates and 8.5 grams of protein. Greek yogurt also contains less sugar and is higher in protein. 

Parmesan Cheese have more saturated fats that plant based proteins. Oz per oz parmesan cheese provides 7 grams of fat, 1 grams of carbs, 10 grams of protein and more protein than any other food. 

4. Trans Fats are to be avoided. They are made from partially hydrogenated oils which in large amounts raise cholesterol, obesity and inflammation. Fast foods, doughnuts, and packaged foods are loaded with trans fats. Find snacks that are trans fats free.

Sometimes it takes two months to loose 27 pounds and sometimes it takes more, but generally it’s easy to loose five pounds in one week and if this is the case-share the news. Make a list of people you know that might benefit from loosing 5,10,15 or 20 pound. These results are the true testimony to the product and will inspire others to loose weight as well. If this is not the case-consider eliminating sugar, white starches, alcohol completely from your diet for a season (if you can), or make sure not to eat 90 minutes after you drink the coffee and be consistent with one or two instant packets a day. 

Lemon Oil Polish

Lemon Oil Polish

After having wanting to clean on a sunny summer day, I decided to oil and polish all the wood surfaces. After rave reviews of seeing glistening furniture, I selected Bailie’s and Parker’s Lemon oil as the subject of my review.

What I noticed first was it’s pleasant, lemon scent, not heavy, but just right. Next, I could feel just how easy the oil was to apply to the wood. The oil lathers onto wood easily, there is this intentional polishing action, as if it were applying itself. The more I polished the piece, the more I enjoyed the process. It fact, my task had ended all too early.

What sat before me gleamed renewed. A piece of furniture with a beautiful, protective layer of oil that leaves no greasy feel, yet leaves the beauty of the wood. Rest assured that this wonderful piece of furniture thirst no more.

A highly recommended product, this is. I shall order another soon as I scurry to find other uses for it.
