Good Fats

Heart friendly fats are unsaturated fats.
  • Monounsaturated fats: olive oil, canola oil, nuts, avocadoes, etc.
  • Omega 3-fats (fish oil): help keep platelets less sticky. salmon, sardines, clams, anchovies, flax seed, etc.
  • Omega 6-fats: soybean, corn, safflower and sunflower oils...but don't over do it and forget about your omega 3's...there needs to be a balance.

Note to self: EAT MORE FISH.
