Which fats should I be eating and cooking with?

Fat is black…oops, no it’s not, fats are actually mostly a yellowish colour…

Anyways, what I meant to say was, FAT IS BACK!

For years we’ve been fooled by advertising companies and convoluted scientific studies that have told us fats are evil (for more information on this read our article on saturated fat).

But guess what? Every single cell in our body is made from saturated fat and we need to eat saturated fat for a healthy mind and body. Listen, just because the word is ‘fat’, doesn’t mean fat will make us fat. Just like the word ‘green vegetable’, doesn’t mean we’ll turn green when we eat them (although that would be kind of cool to watch a person turn green).

We do however have to be wary of some fats, because many of them have been so highly refined and modified, that they have now become toxic and can certainly harm our health when we consume them.

So which fats are healthy, and which fats should we send to the toxic dump where they can hang out with other toxic waste? Well I’ve got all your answers in the second episode of our four part series on how to ‘healthy-ify’ your kitchen fridge and cupboards. Watch it below:

In a nutshell, what you’ll learn from the video above is the following:

HEALTHY FATS:

Butter, ghee, coconut oil, macadamia oil, olive oil (but make sure you watch the video as some of these oils are not safe to cook with, heat can turn oil toxic)

UNHEALTHY FATS:

Margarine, canola oil, vegetable oil, soybean oil, sunflower oil
