I've mentioned Omega 3 fats a lot in this post, and that's for a good reason. These fats are anti-inflammatory in the body. Unfortunately, the American diet is very high in Omega 6 fats (from vegetable oils like corn) which are pro-inflammatory to the body. We need Omega 6 fats, but not in the quantity that we consume them here in the US. So reach for those nuts when you need a snack!
