Is there a list somewhere of seed oils? I keep reading on Paleo sites that seed oils shouldn't be used. What does this include? I'm assuming like soybean, etc. I also know that, obviously, seed oils come from seeds, but I'm looking for further... (more)

I think it is helpful to think about why you might want to do (or not do something) like add additional fat to a meal. Many vitamins (like A, D, E, and K) are fat soluble, so fat is required in order for you to absorb them effectively. The good... (more)
