Coconut oil is definitely the way to go if you are allergic to olive oil. Consuming this right types of Omega 6’s are actually beneficial to our health. Most people hear omega 6 and run the other way! It’s because as a society, we are lead to believe that omega 6’s, which is found mostly in fast food, ie. vegetable oils (made up on corn and soy-both of which are not even vegetables) are super unhealthy for us, will raise our cholesterol, and make us gain weight. Well that is true but not all omega’s are created equally! Coconut oil has been shown, time and time again, to be a healthy saturated fat. You can also try cooking without oil, use coconut milk (with delicious spices), water, broths or like Dr. O said, rendered fat from grass fed meats.
Hope that helps Austin!!
