Why All Of My Recipes Are Oil Free
Not using oil when cooking is a personal choice that tends to keep my calorie intake to a minimum. According to an Article from Pritikin Longevity Center:
"With over 4,000 calories per pound, olive oil is far more calorie dense than even pure refined sugar, which has 1,725 calories per pound. Because of its extremely high calorie density, adding olive oil to any food or meal will dramatically increase its calorie density."
The Pritikin oil article continues by stating that, "...consuming a lot of olive oil (or any other fat) can easily lead to weight gain and obesity, which leads us straight to poor heart health."
High fat meals clog our arteries and impairs blood flow not to mention promotes inflammation.
I have read many articles from physicians from the Committee For Responsible Medicine, such as Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Michael Gregor, on the dangers of oil. The evidenced-based research is astonishing. Do your own due diligence and I trust you will make the same findings as I have:
- Oil Is A Processed Food
- Oil Is Loaded With Empty Calories
- Oil Has No Nutritional Value
- Oil Clogs Our Arteries & Stiffens Blood Vessels
- Oil Promotes Heart Disease
To achieve your daily fat intake choose whole food plant-based fats:
- Flax Seeds
- Chia Seeds
- Hemp Seeds &
- Raw Cacao
- Just to name a few.
“NO OIL! Not even olive oil, which goes against a lot of other advice out there about so-called good fats. Both the monounsaturated and saturated fats contained in oils are harmful to the endothelium, the innermost lining of the artery, and that injury is the gateway to vascular disease. It doesn’t matter whether it’s olive oil, corn oil, coconut oil, canola oil, or any other kind. Avoid ALL oil.” – Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn
"The Fat You Eat is the Fat You Wear." – Dr. John McDougall.
