Tip of the Day

Tip of Day

Some fats are good! Omega-3 Fatty Acids are the good fats. Including these fatty acids in your diet will help you increase your good cholesterol, decrease your bad cholesterol, and reduce your risk of heart disease. Fatty fish, such as salmon, sardines, swordfish, and albacore tuna contain these heart-healthy fatty acids. Vegetarians can get them by cooking with flaxseed oil and flaxseed flour.
