Oils and fats are often considered bad or being seen as unnecessary calories in our western society. Some people are even scared to add oil to their food. I used to be one of those people. When I did some research about oils online, I was able to find thousands of posts about how bad oil really is for your body, but not really a lot of content why it is actually extremely healthy.

So i decided to create this post:
