Cooking with Oils

Try and cook with either Olive oil which gives a smoke point of up to 400 degrees F or even better, Grapeseed Oil which is good to 485 degrees F.  The higher the smoke point then the less the nutrients in some of these 'healthy' oils break down and the less chance of any nasty trans fats (which are effectively poisons) to creep in and they hold their flavours better too..

Oh and if you buy your Grapeseed oil now you will find it at about half the price of buying it in the winter, so stock up with a couple of bottles for your stir fry's, lean bacon breakfasts and anything else that you may need a bit of high temp. lubrication for!
