We often ask each other about what the best oils are for cooking as mothers/parents who want to provide the best for our families. I have put together some information from sites I trust very much when it comes to health and food information. This information has benefited me immensely when it came to choosing the best cooking oil for our family.
We pretty much use all kinds of oils we can find, for all types of things, cooking, body, hair, furniture and cleaning. When it comes to cooking we use coconut oil, sesame oil, flaxseed oil, light olive oil (for low heat cooking) and ghee (clarified butter) I have been considering making our own ghee. Extra virgin Olive oil is also one of our favorites but not when it comes to cooking, we use it as salad dressing and on top of Zatir bread and hummus.
