Step 4- Use High Quality Fats
So, we’ve learned that industrialized oils like corn, soy, canola and vegetable are terrible for our health but now we need to know what to replace them with. High quality fats that I use in my kitchen are butter, lard, olive oil, tallow and coconut oil. In the video, we talk all about fats and why I use them. Plus, I briefly explain which fats I like to use and for what. (I’m sorry this one is a little lengthy!)
Links Mentioned in the Video
- Visit my shopping guide which breaks down companies I use and trust, plus where to find them. You’ll also find websites that help you source grass-fed and pastured animal products.
- An amazing healthy, homemade caeser dressing recipe
- Make your own mayo
This one may be a bit trickier because you may have to do a little digging to find pastured animal products but I have faith in you. Make sure you check out my shopping guide which gives you names of brands I use and trust along with helpful links to guide you in finding local farmers in your area.
I’d love to hear which fat you chose and why, as well as what you used your new fat for cooking with.
