What’s the New Olive Oil? Try Macadamia Oil.

Happy New Year, everyone! Now that it’s the beginning of the year, it’s time to get back down to business. I’m reading a new, amazing book called The 4 Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss. I’ve only read the first hundred pages but I can’t wait to tell you about it. This book is from the guy who wrote The 4 Hour Work Week. On the cover, Tim describes his book at “an uncommon guide to rapid fat-loss, incredible sex, and becoming superhuman.” I think that says it all. Check it out. I’m planning on giving you interesting tidbits from his book over the next few days

Today’s tip is to try Macadamia Oil. Tim says that several high-level body building coaches introduced him to this oil. I just ordered a bottle. According to Tim, it tastes almost like butter which makes it great for cooking things like eggs. It has a high smoking point which makes it ideal for sauteeing and all types of cooking. It has a long shelf life. The fat is 80% monounsaturated. The most interesting fact is that it’s the lowest of all cooking oils in omega-6 fatty acids but high in palmitoleic acid which isn’t found in any other plant oil. Because palmitoleic acid is found in the sebum of human skin, macadamia oil can also double as a potent skin moisturizer!

I can’t wait to try it. Give it a shot and let me know your thoughts.
