LET'S TALK OILS!
I heard a really great podcast that sparked my interest in the topic of cooking oils and which are the top dogs for optimal health. I'll post the link at the end for you to check out if you're interested in a good listen on your next drive to work!
I'm gonna keep it brief even though this is a lengthy AF topic to cover. You're welcome :)
One of the WORST oils for cooking and consumption yet probably the most COMMONLY found in foods:CANOLA OILPeople go back & forth over the positive and negative effects of canola oil just like people bicker over peanut butter VS almond butter... truth is, there's going to be research showing good/bad for BOTH. To sum it up, here's what I found interesting:
CANOLA OIL IS EVERYWHERE.Check the labels on any packaged food you buy. It is surprisingly in a LOT of foods, even foods that may trick us with "natural" or "healthy" on the packages. It is also the most highly used oil at restaurants and sadly, found in most options at the food bar in places like Whole Foods.
So can you totally avoid it 100%? NO.
Can you purchase food at the grocery store without it? YES!
Can you ask for your food when dining out to be cooked in olive oil? SURE!
Can you limit vegetable oils by limiting fried and processed foods? YES!
WHAT ARE THE BEST OILS FOR MY HEALTH?
