Adequate dietary fat is import for good neurological function and management of depression, so you might want to think twice about starting a low-fat bikini diet just yet. Here’s an article I was quoted in recently that discusses the benefits of various types of oils. If nothing else, it’s worth clicking on for the ridiculous photos.
Olive oil is the main cooking oil I use, but I also keep coconut oil on hand. It’s great for a change of pace (perfect with roasted sweet potatoes), but truth be told, my main use for it is as a post-shower moisturizer. Yep, I’m that weirdo who keeps a jar of coconut oil in the bathroom. Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it—It’s so gentle and keeps my eczema in check. Love this stuff.
What are your favorite oils to cook with? Any other stuff you like to use those oils for?
