My husband and I use coconut oil to cook just about everything. (He even likes to spread it on whole grain toast!) Most people think it is a bad fat, but it's really healthy, and it also adds good flavor to food. So, keep some in your kitchen and your bath - because it's great for your skin, too!
I'm just saying... Kelley

Sometimes I need to use an oil that doesn't have the flavor and aroma of olive oil. In those instances, I use canola oil. Here's a link with more info about canola oil. http://www.canola-council.org/canola_oil _for_healthy_cooking.aspx
Grapeseed oil is also an excellent cooking oil...Grapseed Oil: Lowers cholesterol Grapeseed oil is believed to reduce bad cholesterol in the arteries. It has a very light taste and can be used just as you use olive oil in cooking. In some cases, grapeseed oil if preferable to olive oil because it has an even higher smoke point (can withstand hotter temperatures).

Mt 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
