Fat has historically been blamed for cardiovascular disease and obesity. Some high-fat foods are healthy. Choosing the right fats and portion sizes is key to incorporating fat into a balanced diet.

Feller suggests eating nuts and seeds to add healthy fats to your diet. Nuts contain monounsaturated fats, omega-3s, fibre, vitamin E, antioxidants, and minerals.
