Which Oils Should You Be Cooking With

When cooking, it is often confusing with all the different types of oils available at the grocery market. The generic term of "vegetable oil" actually refers to a blend of a variety of oils. These often include corn and soybean oils. If these oils are not organic, they are going to be most likely genetically modified.

If at all possible, you should try to cook with olive oil. It has no trans fat and can be great for cooking with. You can use it with your salad, for frying, baking as well as grilling. You can also use macadamia nut oil, rice bran oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil or hemp seed oil. While these oils might be a little more expensive, it is well worth the health advantage for your family.
