‘Healthy’ Cooking Oils

'Healthy' Cooking Oils

Cooking oil can be a bit of a tricky subject for those of us wanting to lose weight and stay healthy.

Some cooking oils may have ‘healthy ingredients’ but when they react with heat, they produce a lot of free radicals; something we definitely want to avoid.

Coconut oil is top of list of healthy cooking oils that DO NOT come with this negative side effect. Because of the saturated fat content (which is actually good for us, remember it’s sugar that’s the real enemy here) it doesn’t react with heat in the same way as other types of fat. Therefore, no free radicals when you use coconut oil!
