Eat...and cook with good oils
Given that I work for a grocery store, I do a lot of nutrition tours and field a lot of questions regarding how to choose better quality foods. One of the most common areas of concern is healthy cooking oils. As it should be. The quality of oils we choose greatly affects our health and so much of what is out there on the shelves (and hidden in our food) is terrible for you.
So I was quite excited when my friend Lori shared a link to a resource that puts cooking oils in their place. The chart, created by Andy Bellatti RD and Andrew Wilder can be found here. Andy, a registered dietitian, also created a complementary post about the science behind the chart. Take a peek...and if you still have any questions, post a comment!
