    What's the Deal with "Healthy" and "Unhealthy" Fats?

    What's the Deal with "Healthy" and "Unhealthy" Fats?

    We now know that fats were unfairly villainized in the 90s. But still, that doesn't mean that all fats are created equal: some are genuinely good for you, while others...not so much. But understanding which ones are healthy and which ones are harmful can be very confusing, especially since some things that sound healthy (we're looking at you, vegetable oil) are not. In this new guide, we break down the differences between healthy and unhealthy fats, including which oils to avoid, how to use different fats for different cooking purposes, why you should care about what kind of omega fatty acids are in your fats, and much more.
