Smart Swap: Oils & Fats

//Smart Swap: Oils & Fats

When America went to a low fat or no-fat diet years ago, heart disease sky-rocketed. This is partially because a lot of the foods people switched to that were advertised as low-fat or low-cholesterol contained partially hydrogenated replacements.  So we basically swapped out the good fat for the bad!

Many people understand the first two but cringe at the thought of eating coconut oil.  Some have even heard bad media reports about coconut oil being too high in fat.

    • It is amazing! We put it in so many things – smoothies, homemade protein bars, and we even spread it on Ezekiel Bread like butter – with a little added sea salt. Do you have any favorite uses for it Dianna?
