The world of cookign oils is very confusing or most consumers. Big agri-busniess and food brands are eager ot promote fancy sounding names with catch phases and proported benefits of their new "healthy oil". Mot of these oils are made using GMO ingredients and heavily procesed with chemicals like hexane and high heat. I avoid soybean oil, canola oil, corn oil, vegetable oil, and cheap big brand olive oils. I prefer "single-estate" extra virgin olive oil and pure olive and also suplememnt other fats like virgin coconut oil and grass fed butter. this episode will discuss the fraud in the olive oil busnies and how you can avoid being a victim in the supermarket aisles.

Growing herbs near your kitchen not only males great sense but great food. I encourage people to grow all the herbs they need on a regular basis so that they do not need to buy herbs that were flown in from afar. Herbs are easy to grow and will produce almost all year under the right conditions. Of course lettuce is a cinch to grow to, and MUCH more economical.
