The 80's and 90's were really disorienting when it came to fat.

Fat was evil, don't let it live in your food! Get it out!

It was a time where things like "I can't believe it's not butter" and no fat cream cheese thrived and filled the shelves.

Do you remember this trend? A lot like the shoulder pads of the 80's, this was misinformation.

Come learn and talk with us about what a good nourishing body-loving fat can do. Healing fats are an important part of our nutrition. Don't get me wrong, there are some you want to steer clear of too. We will give you the low down on healing versus inflammatory fats.

How would you know if your symptoms are due to not enough good fat? We are going to guide you through what feelings, sensations, and body messages might indicate fatty acid deficiency. That is fancy talk for not enough good fats.

Fat can fuel your sport. We will delve into how being a "fat burner" is helpful for athletic performance.

Curious about how fat becomes energy? We will take a trip through the body to show you the where and how of it all, and include some information on how organs like the liver and gallbladder are key players in fat break down.

What happens to this process if the gallbladder is removed? The gallbladder does stuff! What happens to the process when the gallbladder Elvis has left the building.

Now, what to do with all this crazy info! Information can be overwhelming. We want to calm the overwhelm, and give you small, simple steps for how to include more healing fats in your everyday life.

SNACKS! Everybody loves snacks. Healing fats will be featured in our selection of treats.
