Whole 30 Tip // Avocado Oil


Lots of questions about avocado oil! Here's some answers: first- where?! I buy mine at Costco- this big bottle here lasts a couple months and I think is only $10ish dollars. Second, WHY avocado oil?! Here's why: Avocado oil has an exceptionally high smoke point. Cooking with oils at temperatures above their set smoke point can create trans fats – a leading contributor to heart disease, cancer and other chronic health conditions. Using a cooking oil with a high smoke point prevents toxins, radicals and decomposed materials from ending up in your food. When oil is heated past its smoke point it begins to break down creating those unhealthy characteristics. Avocado oil has a smoke point of 500 degrees, making it safe to cook with at very high temperatures. Olive oil has a low smoke point, so I personally only use it for dressings or anything I don't cook. Info from chosenfoods.com
