Kansas City Dietitian Chews the Fat
Verb, 1. chew the fat – talk socially without exchanging too much information; “the men were sitting in the cafe and shooting the breeze” …
Wonder Dietitian Dictionary- chew the fat– to chew and swallow something full of juicy calories that are harmful, artery clogging, and void of nourishing nutrients.
As you know, Wonder Dietitian wants to make your diet simple. So, to put it simply, if you eat something that has fat in it that you have to chew, spit it out. (If you are at a fancy shmancy restaurant, please spit it out into you pretty white linen napkin, and not out on to your plate ugh, disgusting.)
All fats are not bad. In fact about ¼ of your daily calories should come from fat. The healthy fats are primarily mono-unsaturated fats. You find these in nuts like almonds, walnuts (and Wonder Dietitian). You also find these in extra virgin cold pressed olive oil. Some day we will talk about the virtues of olive oil. Another good source of healthy fat is avocados. Yes, guacamole made with fresh avocadoes, chili peppers, lime juice, and onions is a great way to eat an avocado.
There are also other bad fats that you don’t have to chew. These are found in dairy products like cheese, butter, sour cream, and cream cheese. These fats are saturated fats.
There is a lot more very important information that you need to know about fat, but, for today we will stop here. It is enough to gross you out by talking about greasy chewy fat wrapped up in a pretty white linen napkin. UGH.
Have a nice day!
