Saturated fats are not always bad. Some forms of saturated fats for example, the kind in coconut, are very healthy. While you don’t want to overdo it, you don’t have to avoid them like the plague either.

During this government shut down, this is what you need to know about food!
Meat, poultry, and grain inspectors will continue to work. However, the USDA will not issue any statistical or economic reports, including reports on the prices and supply levels of agricultural commodities. These reports are particularly important to commodities markets. The Forest Service will close its offices and furlough the vast majority of its staff, with only a limited number of law enforcement and firefighting personnel remaining on duty. Campgrounds and other recreational sites will be shuttered. The Agricultural Research Service and the Foreign Agricultural Service will shut down.
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, or WIC, may be seriously curtailed. The government will not contribute any new money into the program, which provides food for low-income pregnant women, mothers and young children. Some states may be able to continue operating the program with existing money for about a week.
Approximately 45% of the Food and Drug Administration’s 14,779 employees will be furloughed. The FDA will stop routine food safety inspections as well as most of its laboratory research. Employees will still handle emergencies and high-risk product recalls.
