What Is The Best Cooking Oil For Good Health?
by James Groves
This is another health tip in a series about simple, easy to follow steps to improving health. Take each small step I give you and turn it into a habit, just like combing your hair or brushing your teeth.
Are you confused when you go to the store to purchase an oil for cooking? I can certainly understand the confusion. Let's see, there's vegetable oil, corn oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, peanut oil, cornola (whatever that is) and for you southerners, there's always lard. This last one I just named is not a misprint. Lard is a white, thick, cooking substance that's been around for a long time. I can remember my Grandmother used this toothpaste, looking glob of white to fry chicken.
So how do you begin to select an oil. First DO NOT ever use vegetable oil. Remember last week's health tip was about butter versus margarine (which is pure vegetable oil). If you missed that article be sure to write Bob and ask for the issue.
Second, DO NOT use the lard I just mentioned above. If it becomes solid and stays solid at room temperature, then imagine what it does in your arteries. Clog-city!!
Your best choice is always olive oil because it tastes good and it's beneficial for your health. Extra-virgin olive oil is great on salads or pasta, but it's also great for cooking. The extra-virgin is usually a little more expensive, but that's because it's the first gentle pressing of the olive and it is less tampered with than other kinds.
So now is the time to go to the pantry and throw out all those saturated fats and even those polyunsaturated ones like corn oil, safflower oil, and soybean oil. Purchase a good quality olive oil. Your arteries and your heart will be glad you did!
