Healthy Oils

These are some of the oils I use in my meal preparation. Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Walnut Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil & Hemp Oil to name a few. Depending on the meal I am preparing, I decide which I will use.

Aside from Olive Oil, we use Coconut Oil the second most in our home (metabolism booster). We use it in our Protein Shakes (when we use a blender), and sometimes on our oatmeal. Probably around one tablespoon per day with your meals. It is great for your skin too, and a lot cheaper than the body creams sold at Bloomingdales or Neiman Marcus and 100% pure!

Try incorporating some of these oils into your diet. They can be purchased at your local Whole Foods.

I read somewhere that Olive Oil blended with Canola Oil was a good combination. Just curious about your thoughts on this? I've been wanting to give coconut oil a try for a long time. Thanks for the suggestions.

Heidi, the Canola Oil/Olive Oil blend is great! especially when used in higher heat, like stir fry in a wok, or pan frying. Stands up to the heat better. great blend! We use coconut oil for Protein Shakes, and we use it all the time for our skin.
