Most vegetable oil is made from soybeans, a factory farmed monocrop. They're almost always grown with pesticides & chemicals, have questionable nutritional value, and don't produce oil naturally + Getting oil from a soybean requires using extremely high heat & chemicals. We're left with a highly unstable oil from mostly polyunsaturated fatty acids, that's likely already rancid by the time it's packaged and shipped to your local restaurant + This oil is labeled "vegetable" oil, and used to cook everything from steaks, omelettes, and sauted veggies, to deep fried donuts, french fries, and chicken nuggets + During high heat cooking, this oil has no chance. It's almost certainly rancid by the time you eat your food, which can wreak havoc on your body + This same process is true for canola, peanut, corn, safflower, sunflower, grapeseed, & rice bran oils + In a perfect world, we should NEVER consume these oils + Unfortunately, 99.999% of restaurants & food service businesses use some form of "vegetable oil" in their cooking. It's literally killing people, and they have no idea, simply because we aren't educated about how toxic these unnatural oils are for our bodies + Luckily, there IS a better way 😀☀️ + Use common sense & embrace fats from NATURAL sources. Cooking requires heat-stable oils, which comes from saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids + What foods contain stable fats? Foods that produce oil naturally + Coconuts + Olives + Avocados + Macadamia Nuts + We take our our responsibility to serve health-promoting food seriously, down to the oils we use + This is no marketing claim. It's a serious issue more restaurants should treat as such + In our kitchen we cook with: + Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Veronica Foods + Organic Palm Fruit Oil + Coconut Oil

#repost @thatvegetablelady cooking up something mighty tasty in the Kitava kitchen👩🏻‍🌾🥗 “COMMUNITY . . . Treated myself to this #aipreintro breakfast skillet after last night’s AIP Cooking Class #3 : Flavor and Texture. . . I spent breakfast reflecting on the reviews we’ve received from the first 3 classes at @kitavakitchen. I am humbled by the positive feedback, and my heart is feeling SO full because of one word that is repeated in multiple reviews from each class: community. . . . My intention for an AIP Cooking Series was never just crispy chicken skins and sheet pan meals. My focus was always to gather people in similar situations, encourage the sharing of experiences and offer tips to make the food part more fun. . . . AIP or any healing lifestyle can prevent us from accessing the community and love felt while sharing a meal. But for the past 3 Wednesdays, I have overheard participants connecting over liver cooking experiments and sharing shopping tips without having to explain or defend their food choices. It is POWERFUL to have that many AIPers in a room. Can’t wait for our last class of the series: AIP Socializing . . . A huge shoutout to @kitavakitchen for creating a restaurant where we can foster this community without fear of contamination. . . #autoimmunepaleo #community #foodismedicine #healingfood

🚨TAKEOVER ALERT 🚨 Michelle of @thatvegetablelady excited to announce the day has finally arrived—It’s AIP Cooking Class Day at @kitavakitchen !! . . . A little about me: I am a food educator, I have celiac disease, I dream about my breakfast before I go to sleep and I am SO excited to meet some new #autoimmunewarriors tonight! . . . Tonight’s class theme is AIP Survival Kit. We’ll talk batch cooking strategy, tips for feeling full, fat bomb recipes and more! . . . Follow along on the @kitavakitchen stories to get a peek behind the scenes before during and after our first class. . . I’ll be answering some FAQ about the 4-part class series this afternoon, so please DM any questions my way. I’d love to hear from you! . . . #autoimmunepaleo #autoimmuneprotocol #foodismedicine
