Trends for 2015

crickets

I heard about the “trends” for 2015 and it made me happy. Finally I’m trendy! For many of you this is probably “2012.”

  • Sugar is “out,” including artificial sweeteners I hope.
  • Salt and sour, as in fermenting, vinegar etc. are in.
  • Fat like butter, coconut oil, etc. are back.
  • Protein from insects is in, like bars made of cricket flour (too much sugar). Thank you, but no thank you. Not for me.

Personally I think that going grain-free is also a trend, without eating gluten-free junk food of course. Read about what to avoid from the Authority Nutrition.

Next time I’m going to write about my wish; that it will be trendy for everyone.

Good fat and why 69% of olive oils are probably fake

oils

Here is a picture of good and bad fats and oils.

When it comes to butter, the best you can buy is butter from grass-fed animals like Kerrygold, or local. When it comes to tallow and lard, it´s the same; if the animal is fed GMO grains; not good. Grass-fed or organic; better.

I believe palm oil is okay for us but its harvesting methods are often problematic for nature and animals. Always buy Fair Trade and organic when it comes to palm oil, or just stick with butter and coconut oil.

I have already written about the benefits of coconut oil in a previous post and how you will want to eat it, use it as a make up remover or even a moisturizer. If you have dry hair take a tiny bit on your fingertips and massage it into your hair to help combat the dryness.

What about the popular olive oil? Olive oil is not as heat stable as butter and coconut oil so it’s much better used cold, and the same goes for avocado oil. But, if you want to eat chips once in a while I would buy chips with avocado oil before olive oil.

Now, what about that “69% of olive oils are probably fake statement.” When a product is hyped and becomes big business always be aware. Here you can educate yourself about olive oil and which brands to buy.

A few helpful links

Dr. Mercola about why butter is good for us.
Dr. Mercola about olive oil.
Dr. Mercola about fats.

BUT PLEASE BE AWARE – WHEN YOU START TO HEAR EVERYWHERE THAT BUTTER AND THE FATS ABOVE ARE GOOD FOR YOU, IT’S NOT JUST AS SIMPLE AS ADDING THESE TO YOUR MEALS IF YOU ARE EATING HIGH CARB FOODS WITH A LOT OF SUGAR, WHEAT, STARCH, ETC.

A COMBINATION OF HIGH FAT AND HIGH CARB IS THE WORST COMBINATION FOR YOUR HEALTH!
