In brief: Plant based

Basically any fat from a plant source is good.
The healthiest people in the world eat mostly a plant based diet with their average meat consumption being about three times a week. When they do consume meat, it is almost always fish. The whole idea behind the omega 3 fats, etc came from observing the eating habits of these healthy cultures.
