#HealthySelfie and Upcoming Classes for Summer 2018

 

 

Our Food Skills & Nutrition Educators share their advice and knowledge to some questions that arise from participants in our programs so you can benefit and learn as well.  If you have a question that you would like to ask, email us at behealthy@poppyinnovations.ca.

 

Q:  I’ve heard that people should cut back on how much trans fat they eat, but I’m confused about what trans fats are and what foods have them. 
 

Answer:

You are right, Canada’s recommendation is 2-3 tablespoons of unsaturated fat each day while cutting back on saturated and trans fats.

Trans fats are found in:

  • Margarine
  • Cakes
  • Cookies
  • Crackers
  • Microwave popcorn

Saturated fats which we should also restrict, are often found in animal products like beef, pork and chicken (think about fats that are solid at room temperature).

Unsaturated fats typically come from plant sources like olives, nuts, seeds and fish. Eating more unsaturated fat than saturated and trans fats can reduce your risk of heart disease and improve “good” (HDL) cholesterol levels.
