Coconut Oil- Yay or Nay?

Posted on 10 April, 2014 at 15:02 Comments comments (6)
 








Here is my rundown on coconut oil- we hear so many different things about it.  

 First of all, coconut oil is in fact, a saturated fat.  It just happens to be a saturated fat that does not come from animals.   Since we do not yet know  the effects of a plant-based saturated fat on the heart over the long term, I would advise you to use it  sparingly until more research is conducted.   

 What we do have lots of good evidence on, based on many studies is olive oil.  The Mediterranean diet has been shown to help many people with heart disease.   What to do?  If you like coconut oil, use a little bit sometimes.  But for most of your cooking I would recommend using the more scientifically proven olive oil. 

Enjoy!
