I’m guessing you’ll say no… But what would you do if I told you you might be lying to yourself and me (how dare you?!)?!
Vegetable oil sounds healthy. I mean the word VEGETABLE is right up in there. And a canola sounds like it’s probably a pretty healthy thing, too, so that’s probably a great thing to eat! Right?!
I am not going to pretend that I am great at explaining the instability of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (the reason why Vegetable Oil is like that sexy undercover villain in spy movies that seems like a great idea but then fries the insides of your veins and arteries… what, you haven’t seen that one?)… So instead, I will just share a link to someone who wrote it out in a way that made good sense to me! Here you go!
Are you one of those people who always wants more? Then there are two awesome books that I’d like to recommend to you – Deep Nutrition by Dr. Cate Shanahan (a friend of Tommy’s, brilliant doctor – she is seriously involved in keeping Kobe Bryant healthy!), and Death By Food Pyramid by Denise Minger! Death by Food Pyramid is a little bit more of an easier read, while Deep Nutrition is more in-depth and scientific, so choose based upon your preference there!
So, now you know why all of my instagram food pictures and recipes contain the words “cooked in bacon fat!” THAT’s what’s healthy (as long as the pig was)! Don’t let the word vegetable fool you. Eat them in their whole form instead!
The true difference in a healthy fat or oil versus an unhealthy one is REALLY whether it’s natural or has to go through a scary process to get to your kitchen!
