Fats and Oils

posted in Nutrition by Helen @ 10:59 pm |

As in any healthy diet, choosing fats and oils that are unsaturated is always best.  In the vegetarian diet these may inlcude the following:

  • avocados
  • olives
  • nuts
  • seeds
  • peanut butter
  • tahini

Including flaxseed oil in salads or smoothies is also a good choice for healthy fats, in particular omega 3 fatty acids which are important for healthy brain function.
