Healthy Foods That Are High In Fat

Healthy food is what you should eat every single day. However, what if we told you to give up some of those healthy foods and replace it with something else, would you still follow it?

According to recent studies, it is said that most of the foods that we consume today are extremely high in fat. Whether good or bad fats, these foods, which are mentioned on the list, should not be consumed on a daily basis.

Foods like these contain certain fats that will only add to the weight gain. If you're obese and suffering from heart conditions and thyroid, it is best to consume these foods in minimum quantities.

On the other hand, these foods are extremely healthy, only because they are not categorised in the junk food list.

These healthy foods, when consumed, add to the nutrient and protein level in the body. They also add energy and increase your metabolism level to an extent.

To make a meal out of these foods, it is wise to choose 1-2 foods from the list and consume them on a weekly basis. Make sure that you switch these foods with more healthier options, just in case you begin to crave for them.

Take a look at some of these healthy foods that are high in fats and, at the same time, should be consumed at least once in a week:

Dried Coconut:

Ever wondered how much of calories you consume when you top your oatmeal with dried coconut? With a bowl of oatmeal, you are taking in around 60 calories, and the dried coconut add to another 60 odd. So, which means you are consuming more fat than fibre. So, dried coconut should be reduced and replaced to better and healthier toppings for your oatmeal.

Peanut Butter:

If you limit yourself to two tablespoons of peanut butter, you'll be taking in 16 grams of fat, about half of which is monounsaturated. And, in most cases, people don't restrict themselves to just two tablespoons; therefore, this is one of the most healthiest foods that is high on fat content.

Black olives have a certain amount of monounsaturated fat, which is much higher than that of a doughnut. So, think twice before stuffing that sandwich with olives.

Dark Chocolate:

Yes, dark chocolate is extremely healthy for the heart. But, dark chocolate is chocolate at the end of the day, and each piece contains a high amount of fat and calories that result in obesity and other problems when consumed in excess.


Nuts are beneficial for the health in a lot of ways. But, too much of them can be a hindrance, as they contains a lot of fat that might not be healthy for the body. Hence, it is best to restrict your consumption and enjoy a minimal meal.
