Lovneet Batra also shares about vitamin K and healthy fats and how they must be consumed. She adds since vitamin K is fat-soluble, it should be consumed with some fats to make sure the vitamin gets absorbed by the body effectively. You can obtain vitamin K from leafy greens like spinach, kale, and broccoli. While certain fats may have negative impacts on the body, the healthy ones do not harm but provide necessary elements including omega-3 fatty acids. The good fat that you must consume includes walnuts, almonds, peanuts, cashews, and olive oil. Walnuts have fibre, protein, essential fats, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, folate, thiamin, and omega-3 fatty acids. Almonds are a great source of antioxidants and it helps maintain blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Peanuts are loaded with protein, fat, and fibre and are rich in good fat. Cashews, when consumed in moderate amounts, can give your body good fats. Olive oil is yet again healthy for your body.
