It’s wellness Wednesday and of curse it’s always a pleasure to share our favorite cooking oil from Africa with everyone! Wait, I never implied any one had high cholesterol lol, but the look on his face made me guilty . Thanks to the whole team @basketballbeautiesleague for opening their doors for us to share our products, especially the red palm oil sauce. And to also talk about the importance of adding red palm oil and other healthy cooking oils to your diet.
Red palm is used daily in Africa by many house holds. The earthy taste with the unique aroma gives food and extra layer of flavor. It also has lots of antioxidants and vitamins E. Red palm is actually one of the only oils that is accredited with all the families of vitamins E; tocopherol and tocotrienol. Adding vitamin E to your diet helps boost your immune system and it has been known to prevent certain cancers. The redness in red palm oil comes from beta-carotene, which when consumed, the body turns it into Vitamin-A (retinol). Beta carotene is an antioxidant and this is particularly also known for killing free radicles in the body.
So how can you use red palm oil since it’s so healthy?
*Add it to your salad dressing (vinegar & peppers)
* Use it to cook yams & eggs 🥚 or add it on baked yams.
*Sauté veggies in red palm oil for a more flavorful & healthier choice of veggie plate.
* Add it to your grains, beans or even on a toast of bread 🥖 (well I saw the women in the villages deep their breads in it ).
* This is a good dose of red palm oil information for you to salivate on. Now if you are ready to add it to your diet, visit us at www.jukasorganic.com or click on bio. Thank you for stopping by and watch this space for more health talk.
