My Real Food Experience partners and I have been researching the subject of healthy oils and fat and have put some articles together for you. Take a look, do some additional research, and make an informed decision for your family.
Nicky from Little Family Adventure wrote the article Fats: Are They The Hero or The Villain? In this article Nicky explores the latest research on fats and how they affect our health. It’s a great piece to share with your family and friends and get a conversation going. Gaye over at Calm.Healthy.Sexy. explores many of the myths around fat and talks about how we actually need fat in our diet for optimal health in her article Fat Without Fear – 6 Things to Know About Dietary Fat and a Healthy Diet. KC over at The Kitchen Chopper once again leads us in our discussion of fitting exercise into our lives. She also discusses which butter she has found to be the best of those commonly found at our grocery store. Check out Healthful Fats/Oils Plus “Balance For Quality of Life.”
Make sure you also check out Nicky’s weekly meal plan and my recipe for Horseradish Hummus. Hummus is an easy way to include healthy olive oil in your diet.
Have fun researching and discovering this healthy way of cooking for your family. Cooking should be fun and not a chore. Get your kids in the kitchen with you and teach them how to help you. It’s a great way to teach them life skills that will keep them healthy for a lifetime.
