Healthy sources of fats:
Note this is far from comprehensive but high lights some of the best and healthiest sources

  • Polyunsaturated Fats:  grape seed oil, flax oil and seeds, hemp oil and hearts, chia seeds, and fish oil along with many other foods and oils 

  • Monounsaturated: avocado oil, walnut oil, olive oil, rice bran oil macadamia nut oil along with other nut oils

  • Saturated Fats: Coconut oil, palm oil, butter, ghee

Note DO NOT COOK with oils high in polyunsaturated fats. In the case of monounsaturated only cook with it at extremely low temperatures. Saturated fats are great to cook with but be sparing.
