The Good & Bad In Cooking Oils

You're a health-conscious cook, and with so many options in the cooking oil aisle it's hard to know which direction to go. Olive oil is always a good choice, since it's so rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Although grapeseed oil can be comparatively expensive, it's used in much the same way as olive oil and has the potential to improve blood lipid profiles. Sesame oil is loaded with vitamin E and provides a novel flavor profile. Just remember to keep it refrigerated. For salads and seafood, try walnut oil for its heavy-duty dose of ALA Omega-3s.

The Bigger Picture: As you can see, there are plenty of healthy taste-tempting options for cooking oil at your local grocery. Experiment with the best ways to use them in your meal planning and reap the nutritional rewards of several different varieties. On the flip side, most nutritionists feel that canola and peanut oil aren't the best choices.
