Do you know what types of fat are good vs what’s bad for your health?

Today I’d like to help shed some light on this topic to guide you in the right direction.

Typically bad fats are made with GMO-based seeds, extracted at high temperature & with solvents, packed into clear plastic bottles (which lets light in), and they wind up being pretty old by the time you buy them which all promotes oxidation and rancidity, which in turn promotes chronic inflammation.

You don’t want to eat these!

On the other hand, good fats are made following higher quality manufacturing standards and are packed into clear or colored glass containers which don’t promote oxidation, so you don’t create inflammation.

Focus on eating 1 tablespoon of good fat at each meal for optimal health.

Here are fats that you should AVOID:

Unsaturated Processed seed oils:

Canola, corn, cottonseed, grapeseed, peanut, rice bran, safflower, soybean, sunflower, & vegetable

Saturated Processed fats:

Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils, typically found in solid fats like margarine

Here are fats that you should CONSUME:

Saturated Fats To Cook With:

Grass-fed butter, ghee, avocado oil, coconut oil, sesame seed oil, perilla oil, or animal fat (i.e., chicken, duck, beef, or pork)

*Organic/virgin forms are best for seed oils and pasture-raised best for animal fats

Unsaturated Fats For Finishing Foods With:

Extra virgin olive oil, hemp seed oil, almond oil, flaxseed oil, walnut oil, pumpkin seed oil, hazelnut oil & MCT oil
