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.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look.
