How To Correctly Use Healthy Fats And Oils In Your Cooking

Primal Power Method Healthy Fats and Oils

At room temperature or refrigerated, saturated fats are solid or semi-solid (e.g., butter, lard, coconut oil). Saturated fats are chemically stable at high temperatures and are ideal for use in cooking.

At room temperature, monounsaturated fats are usually liquid (e.g., olive oil). Monounsaturated fats may become solid if refrigerated. They are useful for cooking at low to medium temperatures.

At cold temperatures, polyunsaturated fats are usually liquid (e.g. flax oil, cod liver oil). At room temperature, polyunsaturated fats are less chemically stable and are therefore usually best stored in the fridge to prevent rancidity. Polyunsaturated fats are not recommended for use in cooking but may be eaten cold, such as on salads.

How to Incorporate Healthy Oils into Your Cooking and Health Routine

What I Consider to be Core Oils

When it come to oils, I recommend in the beginning that you keep it simple. Make sure they are virgin, cold pressed and organic. Remember when oils, which almost all of todays oils fit this profile, are highly processed causing them to become rancid. Rancid oils Primal Power Methodwill have the opposite affect of healthy oils, which means they will cause inflammation and free radicals in the body, instead of the life giving properties of healthy oils.

Here is my essential oil list, as outlined in my book The  Simple Life Guide To Optimal Health: How to Get Healthy, Lose Weight, Reverse Disease and Feel Better Than Ever.

– Coconut Oil (Use for cooking at higher heats)

– Palm Oil (Use for frying as it is a very stable oil at high heat)

– Butter (Only use organic real butter can be used for cooking at low to medium temps)

– Olive Oil (Can be used for medium heat cooking, but I recommend using it for drizzling on salads and vegetables instead) It is easy to heat olive oil to a point of turning it rancid.

The reason I call these core oils is because I consider them to be the healthiest and the easiest to find in stores.
