Savannah Fisher is a Nike Master Trainer based out of Texas. Here she recommends the best sources of healthy fats:

Avocado
The “good” fat known to lower bad cholesterol. I could eat avocados with anything, but just like everything else, moderation is key.

Try it: on toast, in baking, in a salad or on its own!

Olive Oil
Olive oil has been proven to lower blood pressure, and reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. This stuff is great, but it still packs 100 calories per tbsp so don’t have too much at a time!

Try it: as a salad dressing, or to make your own pesto

Almonds, Walnuts and Pistachios
Almonds are richest in Vitamin E; pistachios have lutein and zeaxanthin, and carotenoids which are important for eye health; Walnuts contain a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid. Nuts have been proven to lower risks for type 2 diabetes along with reduced risks for heart disease.

Try them: in a salad, as a crust on fish or chicken, or as a snack

Fatty Fish
Salmon, Tuna and Trout are all full of Omega-3 fatty acids and good fats unlike the saturated fats found in most meats.

Try them: baked in the oven with some sweet potato, torn in a salad, in a homemade fish burger
