    What to do: Add some healthy fats to at least 1 meal a day this week.

    One of the important steps that you should be taking as you move along with your diet is looking at ways to add healthy fats into your day. Since you're going to be moving away from refined and processed carbs on this diet plan and focusing instead on getting the vast majority of your carbohydrate intake from fruits and vegetables, this means you need to seek energy elsewhere.

    The place you'll be turning to is healthy fats. Healthy fats will provide a stable source of long-term fuel that won't have you experiencing blood sugar highs followed by crashes throughout the day.

    Many people simply don't know how to incorporate healthy fats into their meals however, so that's what we're here to discuss right now. Let's take a look at a few of the top tips to add healthy fats to your vegetables.

    Sauté Veggies In Olive Oil

    The first way to add fats to your veggies is to sauté them in a bit of olive oil. Olive oil is high in heart healthy mono-unsaturated fat and this component of your meal will help keep your hunger level down lower.

    Combine Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar For A Salad

    If you're preparing a salad, consider combining olive oil with balsamic vinegar in a salad as well. This is a perfect way to balance out the fiber with some healthy fats and add more taste.

    Rather than using a creamy dressing which is rich in saturated fat, this dressing will help to improve your health instead.

    Add Avocado Or Nuts To That Salad

    Another great way to add some healthy fats into your salad is to add in some avocado or nuts. Both of these are rich in healthy fats and will help to tide your hunger over for hours after you consume them.

    Avocado will give the salad a creamy texture while providing you with a great dose of vitamin E. Nuts pack in that crunch that you may be looking for and if you're using walnuts, will also boast a good dose of omega fats as well.

    Make A Salmon-Spinach Dip

    Finally, the last thing to consider is preparing a salmon-spinach dip. Mix together some canned salmon along with some frozen spinach and salsa. Serve this with some raw veggies for the perfect snack any time that contains proteins, fiber, and healthy fats.

    So don't miss out on your healthy fat intake any longer. Instead, use these ideas to meet your needs.
