5 Ways to Eat Heart Healthy through the Holiday Season

  

2. The best oils to use to marinate your protein and to cook with


Walnut oil is high in Omega 3’s and can add a very distinctive flavor when baking, cooking, or marinating. Extra virgin olive oil is always very versatile when cooking and marinating, and it is high in antioxidants, which help to ward off damage from higher fat foods. Pumpkinseed oil (although it can be more difficult to find) has Omega 3’s and gives an interesting flavor when cooking and marinating foods. Other oils may add a distinct flavor, which you are looking for in your meal, and if you are using them sparingly, great, but you don’t want to cook in oils unless they are either high in antioxidants or high in Omega 3’s.
