National Fat Free Living Month is this month. Of course, after the holiday season; many of us begin the year wanting to drop the weight we gained.

National Fat Free Living Month

Since we are a few days into the New Year; now is a good time to start the year off by eating healthy and making smarter food choices.

So this month was started by the United States Diary Association. In my opinion, they should change this to low fat month. Meanwhile, it is essential that everyone has some fat in their diet.

National Fat Free Living Month – Fat in our Diet

So, let’s take a look at the importance of fat in our diet. In the first place, fat is one of the biggest resources of energy in our body. Moreover, fat protects our organs. Of course, there is good fat and bad fat.

At the same time, fat is vital to our health and well-being. For instance, healthy fats are found in both whole and unprocessed food. In fact, a plant diet is good for you. To read more on food to eat on this diet; visit my Choose Plant Base Healthy Diet post.

Without fat in our diet, our body wouldn’t get enough vitamins such as vitamin, A, vitamin D, and vitamin E.

When you are planning your grocery list; these are some of the items you should stock up on.

- Grass-fed meat

- Organic produce and vegetables

- Nuts

- Olive Oil (I recommend Extra light Bertolli Olive Oil).

- Wild fish
