Want to lower your bad cholesterol….eat nuts!

Eating a moderate amount of unsaturated fats through nuts, avocado, olive oil, and fatty fish every day is smart. Why? These foods have been linked to lowering bad cholesterol. What’s more canola oil and flaxseed oil provide omega-3 fatty acids, which have a number of perks, like reducing arthritis aches. However, fat does contain more calories than carbs or protein, so stick with an ounce (a handful) of nuts, a quarter of an avocado, or up to a tablespoon of oil per serving. (Woman’s Day)
