The Big Book of Healthy Cooking Oils

Nutritionists, culinary experts, and home cooks can often be divided over fats and oils in an ever-changing nutritional landscape. That’s why it makes a fat load of sense to add culinary wellness expert Lisa Howard’s The Big Book of Healthy Cooking Oils: Recipes Using Coconut Oil and Other Unprocessed and Unrefined Oils — Including Avocado, Flaxseed, Walnut & Others to your kitchen bookshelf. This is a comprehensive book on how oils and fats are necessary macronutrients, support brain health, and offer anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits. It explains the demerits of refined oils and lists healthy oils, their nutritional and flavor profiles, and how they can improve the taste of dishes. Details about rancidity and practical tips to buy and store oils are also included. Howard uses both grass-fed animal products and plant-based oils in a variety of nutritious recipes for you to pick and choose from.
