Healthy Oils: 7 Healthy Oil Alternatives For Cooking

Coconut oil
Coconut oil is full of flavour and has nutrients like vitamin E, K and iron that are retained at high temperatures.

Flax seed oil
Flax seed oil is full of essential omega-3 fatty acids. You can use it unheated in shakes, salad dressing, cereals or on toast.

Ghee is a butter that is free of impurities and cholesterol. However, use sparingly if you are trying to lose weight. It is also very calming to the nervous system.

Grapeseed Oil
This oil maintains its healthy properties known to fight cancers and lower cholesterol at high temperatures.

Hemp Oil
Just like flax seed oil, hemp oil is full of the essential omega-3 fatty acids and should be used unheated.

Olive Oil
Olive oil is usually readily available, affordable and cooks well at high heat without losing its nutritional value. It is also known to lower your risks of heart disease -- and tastes great on salads or as a sauce.

Sesame Oil
Sesame oil is a bit more expensive, but you only need to use a little for a lot of flavour. It also has a lowering effect on blood pressure.
