Ever wonder why that belly fat is the hardest to lose? It’s because we aren’t eating enough magical MUFA’S. Monounsaturated fatty acids are the perfect antidote to a fat belly! These plant-based fats are healthy because they are organic elements. They combine to form a flexible chain that flows through your arteries –because they are flexible, they don’t get stuck on the walls of the arteries and cause corruption. Saturated fats, on the other hand, are sticky and inflexible—-they gum up those arteries.
We can declog those pipes by adding more monounsaturated fats into our diet like oils, nuts, seeds, avocado, and dark chocolate. Go for adding a MUFA at every meal!
Here’s a great recipe from super foodie Kathy–AngelaMD’s wellness expert!
