The SlimLife way to cook healthy

It is a common perception that while cooking a healthy meal taste always takes the backseat. This is very wrong. A healthy meal can be tasty too. Fat and oil are no less when it comes to providing us with nutrition. The trick is to first know the difference between good fat and bad fat and second, to know the limit.

Fat and oils make our food taste good. But there is more to what they do to the inner organs. Fat is a source of energy. It carries the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and provides essential fatty acids. Fat also acts as an insulating material to the body and organs.

Saturated and trans fats are bad for health because they increase the cholesterol levels in the blood. When you are buying oil or other fatty snacks look for the kind of fat present in the product. Butter contains over 50% saturated fat. Hence it is advisable to use butter in moderation.

On the other hand Monounsaturated fats are good for health. Olive oil is best known for being high in monounsaturated fats. Also macadamia nuts, avocado and canola oils are healthy choices because they contain high level of monounsaturated fats. Polyunsaturated fat is also good for our health and wellbeing. They are split into two groups: omega-6 and omega-3 and are very important for healthy living.
