Our Favorite Items from the News!

  • Snacks Go Low Carb
    Time Magazine looks at new junk-food substitutes that taste great!
  • Risk Syndrome Found In Overweight Teens
    Okay, they've dubbed a new "disease" Risk Syndrome meaning that if you're overweight, have high blood pressure, high triglycerides, low levels of HDL ("good") cholesterol, and high blood sugar you have this syndrome. Um, excuse me... these are the symptoms of obesity from a high carb diet. Wake up... stop renaming the problem, and accept that lowering carbs and cutting out empty sugars and trans fats is the only answer. Grrrrr...

Product Of The Month
Our product review team features two (2) "Products Of The Month" one in each issue of
our magazine. These products will be the group consensus of those we find to be the
most innovative, healthy, tasty, and/or helpful to the low-carber's daily dietary regime.

Macadamia Nut Oil In the search for the perfect oil to use in our healthy low carb kitchens, we've settled on Macadamia Nut Oil for taste, versatility, and healthfulness. And our recommendations are the fine pure oil from
Oils Of Aloha
, and Dr. Pescatore's Healthy For Good Mac Nut Oil.

For cooking, baking, frying, and in salads, macadamia nut oil boasts the most favorable ratio (1:1) of Omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids of all the culinary oils including olive and canola. Great news in the continuing quest to avoid heart disease and high blood pressure. Countering the difficult to avoid Omega 6 fats by adding or replacing them with healthy amounts of Omega 3 fats, it's beneficial to our HDL/LDL ratio ("good" vs. "bad" cholesterol).

Macadamia Nut Oil Also, in a recent dietary study, preliminary indicators suggest the palmitoleic acid content of macadamia nuts may actually aid in fat metabolism, possibly reducing stored body fat. And indeed, since adding it to our testers' daily diets, each has noticed more rapid weight loss.

And macadamia nut oil has a lofty smoke point of
389 F! This high smoke point provides an extra margin of safety and stability for the full range of cooking temperatures and doesn't turn to dangerous trans fats as it heats.

It has a pale golden color and a rich flavor that doesn't overpower your cooking. Plus the superior coating properties of macadamia nut oil means a little goes a long way. Once opened, many other polyunsaturated cooking and salad oils need to be protected with refrigeration. Healthy macadamia nut oil is stable and safe for months after opening, even at room temperature. If refrigerated, macadamia nut oil lasts for years. Of course, it is so tasty you'll use it well before then!

Oils Of Aloha Macadamia Nut Oil is available at netrition, and Dr. Pescatore's Healthy For Good! Mac Nut Oil is available from The Low Carb Connoisseur.
