Let’s talk about fats

2 JUNE 2017

I end the week with a new video about nutrition, one of those I love sharing and I see you like. Also, I’d like to take this opportunity to let you know that if you don’t see your comments published and answered yet, don’t worry. This wonderful community is growing and being a full time working mum, 24 hours a day are not enough. I hope you can understand it and be patient.

Once again, I meet with my friend and nutritional coach Mª. Antonia Rodríguez to talk about fats. We will share with you the types of fat and in which foods we can find them to benefit from them. Fats have been demonized and I am sure you can recall more than one weight-loss diet where those are forbidden.  With this video we want to share some more information so you can judge and build a balanced diet that’s as healthy as possible. Said this, I’d like to advance you that healthy fats can turn bad, and bad fats can be good…

(Sorry the video is only in Spanish)

V! Encantada de nuevo escribirte mi comentario acerca de este post magnífico que habéis hecho. Quiero preguntarte acerca de un fruto seco que siempre me encantó y lo vi un poco excesivamente graso y no sano (ya que pienso que las almendras, avellanas o nueces son mucho mejores) ahí va, ¿ Qué piensas de los anacardos en cuentl fruto seco graso… graso…? Un saludo y me encanta tu forma de educarte.

Hola Beatriz,
Gracias por seguir el blog y compartir tus inquietudes.
El anacardo es un fruto seco muy rico y sano, aunque es cierto que es más graso que los demás. Como Mª Antonia cuenta en el vídeo, las grasas estuvieron demonizadas durante mucho tiempo y quizá por eso todavía nos cueste ver con buenos ojos a frutos secos como el anacardo.
Un abrazo,
V.

Vanesa,
I loved your blog on India ! it seems you really didn’t get any freedom to delve into the country and now you have to go back do that ! I want to go there as well someday. A great book to read is the late Maharani of Jaipur’s ( Ayesha) autobiography. I learned so much from reading it ! A fascinating a brave woman she was/is.
And now on to fat ! I used to be afraid of fat too, but now that I know what is healthy to eat I’m not. I love to have half an avocado a day, olive oil on gluten free pasta, a handful of nuts such as pecans or pine nuts. Maybe a few times a year I will buy good quality coconut butter and add it to my raw cacao to make it “milk chocolate.” I also love to buy local “Mactella” which is a combination of pure chocolate, honey, and raw macadamia nuts. It is so delicious. But my favorite fat, ever ? Hazelnuts ! I love to make raw hazelnut mylk and add a banana and cacao powder to make a chocolate smoothie. It’s so wonderful in autumn.

Thank you for your wonderful posts.

Namaste,

Tajna

Dear Tajna,
Work trips leave almost no time for leisure. Luckily we made it to the Taj Mahal, but definitely we have to go back.
As always, thank you for sharing your tips. I’ll write down these recipes!
Best,
V.
