  • Monounsaturated fat is found in olive oil and avocados.
  • Polyunsaturated fat is found in vegetable oil, nuts and seeds.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids are found in cold-water fish, flaxseeds, flax oil and walnuts.

For more information on healthy fats visit the American Heart Association Face the Fats website.
