Fat, in the right amount and of the right kind, does not make you fat and is actually healthy for you.

Here are three things to know about fat.

  1. Human brain cell membranes are made of essential fatty acids and fat serves as a source of energy for our bodies, among other important functions. Our bodies need access the "good" type of fat for growth, brain and organ function, metabolism, reproductive and hormone health and more.
  2. Decades of sound science has proven that too much saturated fat can raise your "bad" cholesterol and put you at higher risk for heart disease. Saturated fat is identified on a food nutrition label.
  3. Monounsaturated fats is referred to as "good fat" because it improves blood cholesterol levels, which can decrease your risk of heart disease. This type of fat is found naturally in olive oil, nuts, seeds and avocados.

Understanding the role that fat plays in a healthy diet, Simple Café cleverly consider nutritional aspects of all our menu items for your benefit. As a result, anyone stopping by the shop is sure to be tempted by their new smoothie, the Almond Butter Bomb.
