    I have purchased and used (mostly in baking – which I suppose I should start doing less of) Spectrum Naturals organic, refined expeller pressed canola oil – should I stop using this version of canola oil too? I thought it was a source of good omega 3 – says 1200 mg omega 3 per serving. Thanks.

    I also have another question on fat – coconut to be exact. I was reading in the current issue of Cooking Light that they now recommend coconut as a healthy fat though watch portions (still fat) and they give a recipe. The recipe was for cookies and they used sweetened coconut – is that still considered beneficial or should it be the unsweetened or organic coconut oil in a jar?

    Hi Greg:

    The questions you asked are all in the book 🙂 I do not recommend canola oil since it has to go through the deodorization process which makes it act more like a trans fat so stick to olive oil, and yes extra virgin coconut oil – see blog on coconut oil (below) for all the information. For the cookies use unsweetened coconut available at most natural food stores. Hope that helps..S
