Healthy Fats & Oils

My kitchen is stocked with olive oil, coconut oil, and butter from pastured, grass fed cows. If you asked most Americans if they thought my fat and oil selections were healthy, they would probably only agree with the olive oil.

As it turns out, maragarine, butter-imitations, and vegetable oils are damaging our bodies. Check out Dr. Mercola’s breakdown of how and why here.

Also, this website for a great book, Eat Fat, Lose Fat; has some revealing research.

Including healthy fats in your diet is essential for optimal health. Know your fats!
