Cut the Fat: The Calories Hiding in Your Cooking Oils
Drizzled on salads, cooked with your favourite veggies, whatever you use it for one thing's for certain — oil isn't going anywhere, and they're most definitely not created equal. So when it comes to cutting through the grease, which do you choose?
There are some better-for-you-fats than others, but steer clear from refined vegetable oils like corn, soybean and cottonseed, as they're outright nasty. Make friends with oils like coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil — even hemp oil. These healthier fats are rich in Omega 3, have low quantities of saturated fat and have natural health benefits like boosting heart health, immunity and providing energy. Scroll through to sort the good fats from the bad, know the calories in each and find the best heart-healthy option for you.
