4 Ways to Get Good Fats

4 Ways to Get Good Fats

Got good fats? As part of a healthy eating lifestyle, work towards adding unsaturated fats to your diet and limiting saturated fats. Unsaturated fats not only help lower bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels but also provide essential nutrition and energy to your day.

Here are 4 ways to get more good fats.

1. Eat Fatty Fish. Eat fish like albacore tuna, herring, salmon and sardines at least twice a week to get essential omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Add tuna or anchovies to your salad and try fish for dinner once a week.

2. Add Nuts. Nuts are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. Aim for a small handful of nuts and seeds like almonds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts and sunflower seeds.

3. Enjoy Avocado. Bake, cook and snack on avocado. This fruit is also an excellent source of fiber. Replace the mayo on your sandwich with avocado, and top toast with avocado for a morning boost.

4. Check Your Oils. Replace oils high in saturated fats with oils such as avocado, grapeseed, canola, olive and sesame oils.

A few simple swaps can have major results for your health. For more easy ideas to start eating healthier, set up a free health consultation with us today. At KareBoost Health, we believe a healthy lifestyle can be enjoyable and accessible.

3 Easy Ways to Encourage Kids to Be Active

3 Easy Ways to Encourage Kids to Be Active

We need to encourage kids to be active in today’s video game climate. If exercise sounds like a chore to you and your family, being active can mean getting outside of the traditional exercise box. Physical activity is good for kids and promotes growth and development. Kids need at least 60 minutes of activity a day, but this does not have to be all at once. Here are some ideas to make activity fun and fit your schedule.

3 Easy Ways to Encourage Kids to Be Active

Walk Everywhere. If distance and age appropriate, walking to and from school is a good way for kids to move. If your kids are too young to walk or bike by themselves, consider walking with them instead of driving them. Think about all the places you regularly drive to. There might be errands and activities that you and your family can walk or bike to instead.

Grow A Garden. A garden is a great way to get outside a moving. Kids can help plant, water and weed. If you do not have the space for a garden, look for a community garden in your area. Selecting and growing your own produce will also get kids excited about eating their veggies.

Athletics. Some kids enjoy competitive athletics. Try different sports and see if anything resonates with your children. However, competitive sports are not for every child, and if your child dreads practice and games, do not force them into it. There are plenty of ways to stay active.

KareBoost Health promotes health and wellness for the whole family. Schedule your free consultation today to see how we can help you live a happy, healthy life. Also, you can check out the schedule for our Family/Kids Yoga.
