Good fats are a part of a balanced diet, yet most people don't consume enough of them each day. However, it's easy to incorporate good fats into your daily meals and snacks. One of the best ways to do that is to recognize the role good fats can play in your everyday cooking routine.
The "Good Fat 5" are foods that are sources of good fats, including plant-based oils as found in buttery spreads, nuts, seeds, avocado and fish. They're delicious incorporated into any meal, at any time of the day. You can put a slice of avocado in your breakfast wrap, add grilled salmon to your salad for lunch, grab a handful of almonds for an afternoon snack and saute your vegetables in a buttery spread for dinner. Particularly when cooking, a buttery spread like I Can't Believe It's Not Butter adds flavor to any meal, whether you're topping baked potatoes, sautéing vegetables, browning chicken or fish, or baking cakes, breads or cookies.
