COOKING FATS TABLE
Oxidation (rancidity) – Forms free radicals which damage tissues, cells, & DNA.
Oxidation is caused by heat, light and/or contamination of the fats.
Damage can happen based on the quality of the product, during processing, storage and when it hits your frying pan
Buy organic when possible to avoid contamination of the fats, especially animal products
See recommended fats, organized by heat sensitivity, in the table below

HEALTHY BLENDS RECIPES HERE
Consider the servings of carbs, proteins and fats in the blend to meet your needs
It’s easy to overload the blender with fruit (and therefore sugar)
Blends are recommended over juicing for higher fiber and better blood sugar balance
Basic guidelines for full-meal blend: 15-20 grams of protein (yogurt, nuts and seeds); 2+ servings of vegetables (1-2 cups); 1 serving of fruit (1/2 cup); 1 serving of fats (1-3 Tablespoons); Unlimited booster foods (Herbs and spices)
