Hey folks, Board-Certified Health Coach Chloe Maleski is here to answer your questions about seed oils. Whether you're wondering whether they're really that bad, trying to avoid them when eating out, or scouting healthier treats for kids, you'll learn some helpful tips and strategies. Got a question you'd like to ask our health coaches? Leave it below in the comments or over in the Mark's Daily Apple Facebook group. Marta asked: "Are seed oils really that bad? Are they okay in moderation? They're in all the foods my kid likes to eat! Crackers, granola bars, muffins… Not to mention when eating out!" Sigh... I know. Highly refined seed oils are cheap and everywhere. Yes, we find them in the usual suspects: fast food, highly processed food, and most conventional food that comes packaged and ready to eat. They also hide out where less expected, including in foods marketed as "healthy" and at restaurants and hot bars that might otherwise pass as Primal. Unfortunately, the answer to your first question is Yes. Highly refined seed and vegetable oils are That. Bad. Even in moderation, they can be detrimental to health. While some folks are more sensitive to highly refined seed oils than others, they can cause inflammation in pretty much everyone. Chronic, systemic inflammation is a scourge of modern times. It's implicated in countless minor ailments as well as more serious ones such as heart disease and cancer. It also weakens our general immune system response, since the body is too preoccupied with active, ongoing inflammation to deal properly with exposure to bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Now, this doesn't mean you have to (or can) avoid inflammatory oils entirely—particularly when eating out. Depending on priorities and life circumstances, this may be a great place to lean into the 80/20 principle: "In the context of full and earnest commitment, an overall 80 percent conformity with the 10 Primal Blueprint rules will yield a solidly healthy result." That's not a green light for choosing foods containing seed oils 20 percent of the time. Highly processed, inflammatory oils are never healthy, even in moderation. But if you aim to avoid them completely and a little slips by on occasion, overall outcomes will still land on the side of healthy. In other words: do your best, but don't stress about perfection. Which oils are bad for you anyway? The fact that you're asking these questions means you're already on track! Once you know what to look for and find trusty staples, avoiding highly refined, inflammatory oils gets way easier. As a starting place, let's consider your kid's favorites. Since crackers, granola bars, and muffins are usually snacks and treats rather than a primary food source, it's best not to go overboard in any case (whether or not they contain unhealthy oils). That said, sometimes a kid (or adult!) just wants a muffin. In those instances, you're wise to check the ingredients when purchasing snacks and treats of any sort. Canola oil is an especially … Continue reading "Ask a Health Coach: Seed Oils, Kiddos, and Eating Out"
