The ‘Really Good’ Oil — Coconut Oil

It seems that I continually get into arguments with the AMA and ADA about their recommended cook with canola oil … grrrrrrrr. I won’t get on my rant-box here but in two shakes online you can easily find that canola oil [aka rapeseed oil] is highly toxic to your body when heated. There are also reports that 90% of the canola oil in the U.S. is GMO so that nails it shut for me right there.

My friends rely on me to do the research [and the math ] as to what is the best oil to use for everything including heat so here is what I recommend : cold-pressed, 100% organic coconut oil [my preference is that coming from the Phillipines]. The two brands that I recommend are : 1]]
2] Carrington Farms that I usually find the best price at Costco; or if you don’t have a membership or Costco near you then amazon also carries it :

Shar’s Stevia

I am asked about stevia at least once a week as more people decide that artificial sweeteners [aspartame, nutrasweet, equal, splenda, sucralose, high fructose corn syrup, truvia …] may be harming their family.

I’ve tried several brands of stevia plus checked prices at local grocery stores and health food stores to find one brand that doesn’t leave an after taste or offend my taste buds and the price is most economical. So here it is … Enjoy!
