We all know that the quality of the food/drink we eat defines the health of our organs, muscles, cells, proteins, brains, etc. Like all animals, we need fats for growth, development as well as to store energy. In this workshop, learn about the essential functions of specific dietary fats and why these are an important part of an active lifestyle.
