This is a great time to make resolutions and set goals for the coming year. My first health related goal is to avoid buying all products containing canola oil. After reading the amazing book Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon, I gained a better understanding of how oils work and began to change the way I eat. At that point I dumped our canola oil and started buying coconut oil. You can order this book at Amazon, by why not purchase it from a local farmer next time you are near Petaluma, stop in for a visit to Tara Firma Farms with the family, get some pasture raised meat, eggs and veggies.
This article, inspired me even further. I emailed Whole Foods requesting that they take canola oil out of their prepared foods. Please click and read!
