We tend to run scared when we hear that our food has fat in it, but staying healthy isn’t a question of cutting fatty foods out of our diet entirely… it’s about moderation!

Some of the healthiest foods in the world have high fat content and they have the ability to keep your body healthy, strong and in tip-top shape!

Here are some fatty foods that you shouldn’t be scared of:


1. Avocados

The fat in avocados is monosaturated fat, which as fat goes, the healthiest option! You need monosaturated fats to stay healthy and avocados have an average of 23 grams!

2. Dark Chocolate

Mmmm…enough said! Dark chocolate contains both monosaturated fat and saturated fats so moderation is key with this fatty food! You don’t want to get too many saturated fats in your diet because they are not as good for your health! Dark chocolate also has flavonoids which act as antioxidants in your body!

3. Black Olives

The majority of fats in black olives are monosaturated (the good kind!) and they also contain Phytonutrients, which has been linked to cancer prevention.

4. Fatty Fish

Omega-3 fatty acids are excellent for your health and fish like salmon are full of them! People who eat lots of omega-3 fatty acids have lower chances of depression, heart disease and dementia.

5. Nuts


High in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium and vitamin E, nuts are an excellent addition to a well balanced diet. The best kinds of nuts are almonds, walnuts and macadamia nuts!

6. Cheese

Although cheese has a high saturated fat content, it makes up for it in calcium, vitamin B12, selenium, phosphorus, and protein! Again, just make sure you eat cheese in moderation… there’s no need to feel guilty for indulging on this yummy stuff once in a while!
