Pork rinds aren't necessarily something you want to eat if you're trying to shed fat or control your sodium intake. Pork rinds are, however, very high in protein. Proteins are obviously a very important ingredient to a healthy diet. Along with the oleic acid, you can eat pork rinds guilt free!
Even though they are excessively high in calories and have more saturated fat than a stick of butter (yuck), coconuts can be a good addition to your diet. Half of the fat in coconut is lauric acid. Lauric acid boosts levels of HDL. HDL is the good cholesterol that can reduce heart disease.
