Exchange SA for PUFA!

Recently, the American Heart Association (AHA) Science Advisory concluded that an adequate intake of dietary polyunsaturated fats (PUFA) may help lower serum cholesterol, thus reducing the risk of coronary heart disease.

This is not hard to do with all the choices available in the grocery store today. “Use soft margarine as a substitute for butter, and choose soft margarines (liquid or tub varieties) over harder stick forms. Look for ‘0 g trans fat’ on the Nutrition Facts label”, says the AHA.

PositiveTip: Substitute vegetable oil spreads for animal-based products such as butter.
