Yes, not all fatty foods are bad for you.

Eating These 8 Fattening Foods Are Actually Good For Your Health

You read that title right. There's good fats and bad fats, just like good bacteria and bad bacteria. When people hear "fat," they instantly blacklist it and strive to eat nothing but salads and diet food. However, not all fats are bad and some of them are necessary to function. Why do you think a lot of people try doing the keto diet? Well, that was a little bit too general but you know where I am trying to go. Here are some of the healthy fats you can try adding to your grocery list:

1. Avocados

Avocados are loaded with about 77% of fat. These fats are more prevalent than any other food. They also contain roughly 40% of potassium, which is a lot more than the average banana. It also contains a lot of healthy oils. Now you see why people put this in their hair and eat, sleep, and breathe avocado. They are also pretty beneficial in cardiovascular health. The next time you're at Chipotle, ask for extra guacamole.

2. All Nuts

Nuts are full of fiber, protein, magnesium and are overall good for your heart. Try to stay away from overly-salted nuts and go for plain ones.

3. Dark Chocolate

As bitter as it sounds, dark chocolate has roughly 65% of fat. It also contains fiber and antioxidants, even more prevalent than blueberries. For those who didn't know, dark chocolate is healthier than milk chocolate.

4. Whole Eggs

Despite the amount of cholesterol in 1 egg, whole eggs are loaded with vitamins and minerals necessary for health. Also, I heard that a good amount of cholesterol is needed for health. Just don't overdo it.

5. Cheese

Cheese has a good amount of vitamins and protein as well as calcium, which is the same amount in milk. Cheese also helps with type 2 diabetes. If you're lactose intolerant, I'd skip this one out.

6. Fatty Fish

Fish such as salmon contains Omega-3 fatty acids. People who eat fish tend to be much healthier, with a lower risk of heart disease, depression, dementia and all sorts of common diseases

7. Coconut Oil (or just a Coconut)

Coconuts can reduce appetite, increase fat burning, get rid of headaches, and overall provide many health benefits.

8. Yogurt

Yogurt consists of healthy, probiotic bacteria, that can have powerful effects on your health. Studies also show that yogurt can lead to major improvements in digestive health, and may even help fight heart disease and obesity.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
