10 Filling Breakfasts Full of Good Fats

Staving off the mid-morning stomach growl is as easy as adding good fats to your breakfast. But healthy fats do more than fill you up. Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) help lower the risk for high cholesterol, which contributes to heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Found in foods like plant-based oils, nuts, and avocados, good fats also play a role in brain health, boost energy and immune function and help the body absorb carotenoids and vitamins A, D, E, and K.

Here are 10 easy ways to bolster your breakfasts with healthy fats.

What might sound like a pseudo-dessert is actually loaded with nutritional worth.
