The Big Book of Healthy Cooking Oils 

Michigan-based author Lisa Howard makes healthy eating simple with The Big Book of Healthy Cooking Oils (Page Street Publishing, $22). Howard shares the importance of buying unrefined versus refined cooking oils and gives lessons on how to distinguish the two on grocery store shelves. The book includes a hefty list of numerous types of unprocessed cooking oils and their origins, including flaxseed, palm, and pistachio oil. Howard then incorporates these oils into 224 pages of mouth-watering, gluten-free recipes. Who knew coconut oil could be used to make bacon-chocolate chip pancakes?
