Oh Boy Avocado!

6 Dec

I just had an angry email sent to me. It was my first as the Jefe so I’m feeling good. Here it is…

Dear Jefe,
I strongly dispute your assertion in the Scrambled egg post on November 9th  that coconut oil is the only good oil to cook with.  Try Avocado oil, which you can find at Costco or a gourmet food shop.  It has a higher smoke point than your coconut oil,  520F compared to 350F to 450F for coconut oil (Depending of course upon if you are using virgin or refined). It has a great flavor as well as providing much versatility in cooking options.  It is also high in Vitamin E and Monounsaturated fats, which promote good HDL (at least in a few studies).”

Okay…so it was my brother-in-law and he really wasn’t angry, but it sounded good.

I LOVE avocados so I’m all over this like an avocado on a taco. I’m going to head to my local Costco and see what’s cooking. More to come!

Oh…Thanks, Matt!

Eat well,

Jefe
