713: What Oils should I Be Cooking With for Optimal Health

Hello, World!

I remember the good old days when you pulled an oil out of the pantry to cook and just knew it was something that was going to give your food a nice flavor.  Little did I know then that just because something was slick and tasty didn't mean it was good for me.  Today I want to help all of us, myself included, understand what oils help us, and which ones should be left at the grocery stores.

What you will learn in this episode:

  • What a PUFA is
  • What cold pressed oils are
  • The healthiest oil to cook with
