They only look innocent 😈
Continuing our talk about vegetable oils.. they’re not only highly processed, made of GMO ingredients (most of the time), wreaking havoc on our soils/climate because they’re monocrops, they are also f*ing up your health!!
Here are the vegetable oils to avoid: (notice none are not even made from vegetable oils… 🤦🏼♀️ clever marketing!)
•Canola / Rapeseed
•Soy / soybean
•Plant-based buttery spreads
•Country Crock / I can’t believe it’s not butter
•Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils
These toxic oils lead to a slew of health issues. They contribute to inflammation, insulin resistance, oxidative stress, increase risk of cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s, cause cellulite, contribute to obesity, they accelerate aging, and lead to liver damage.
“A shocking 80 percent of the average American’s fat calories come from vegetable oils, leaving very little room for the healthy fats your cells actually crave.
The fatty acids in these vegetable oils must be stored in your body fat, as your body has no way of eliminating them.
Over time, as you continue to eat more and more vegetable oils, the fatty acid composition of your body fat changes.
The fatty acids in vegetable oils are difficult for your body to burn in a controlled fashion, and cells can’t extract energy from them with normal efficiency.
Your body fat is supposed to be your primary cellular fuel. When you can’t burn your body fat for energy, your cells are forced to turn to the less reliable alternative fuel: sugar.”

Where are these oils hiding? Every restaurant uses them to cook and the vast majority of processed/packaged foods contain them.
Read ingredients and cook as much as you can from home!!
