Best thing to use would be FOOD GRADE silicone spray. It's specifically made for protecting blades and plates between uses. Any type of oil or fat will run the risk of turning rancid and gummy between uses.

I am reading this book, having seen it touted in Underground Wellness. It is well-researched and endorsed by many key researchers. The only Q I have so far is the focus on zero and low-fat foods. Why? Can anyone make sense of this?
