Heart Health is a concern of many people. When it comes to eating healthy, looking at the types of fat in our diet is a key issue. We all know that “fat is flavor” and we need some fat in our diet. It’s important to choose healthy fats – less saturated fat (solid at room temperature) and more monounsaturated fats (liquid at room temperature, derived from plant sources) with those Omega 3 fatty acids. We recently did a fun cooking demonstration at the Alexandria Farmer’s market using lean beef, lots of veggies, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil – a healthy fat. Check out our recipe for Farmer’s Market Fajita Skillet!
