Vet your vegetable oil
Just because vegetable oil often appears on lists of so-called “good” fats doesn’t mean you shouldn’t carefully consider its nutrition. Many processed foods, for instance, contain hydrogenated forms of the oil, a process that turns unsaturated fats into more harmful saturated ones. Today, challenge yourself to go through your cupboards and carefully read the nutrition labels on your oils. Anything with “partially hydrogenated,” “hydrogenated” or “trans fats” should be given the boot, whether or not it also cites “vegetable” as its oil.
