No Seed Oils – FitChef’s Strict EatClean Principles

Healthy fats should always be on the menu. These omega-3s are beneficial for our health with good anti-inflammatory properties.

However seed oils like sunflower oil, corn oil, safflower oil and soybean oil have pro-inflammatory properties and may contribute to our risk of coronary heart disease.

The FitChef Way

Olive oil is without a doubt one of the healthiest oils to use in our diet and why FitChef proudly uses extra virgin olive oil in our meals.

Research shows that regular consumption of extra virgin olive oil (compared with refined olive oil) might help in the prevention, development, and progression of type 2 diabetes.
In addition, olive oil contains other bioactive compounds and
phytonutrients for good health.

Seed oils promote inflammation and too much inflammation is a bad thing (causing aging etc). Most coconut oil is either rancid or has additives (often not declared) so we are wary of using coconut oil.
