Watch the Avocado

You hear about avocado being a good fat.  But keep in mind it’s an Omega 6 fat, not an Omega 3.  We lack the Omega 3 in our diet.  Most of us don’t get enough Omega 3.  You’re looking to balance those two fats out equally.  Please read about Omega 6/3 ratios on the Favorite Links page.  So if you’re eating an avocado a day, that’s a lot.  Balance is the key.  Look for sources of Omega 3.  Salmon, sardines, halibut, and tuna are the most natural sources for a paleo diet.  Avocado is delicious and a step in the right direction but don’t go overboard.  Continue to eat your leafy greens and root vegetables.
