Check Your Label And Serve Up Healthier Dishes With Soybean Oil! Gift Card #Giveaway

Disclosure:  This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with United Soybean Board.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.

    My family has a history of heart disease on both sides.  On my mother’s side, we suffer from high blood pressure and stroke and on my father’s side, heart attack and also blood pressure problems.  As a result, taking care of our hearts is a serious priority for the members of my family.  One of the ways that we have begun to make changes in our diets is by incorporating more heart-healthy meals and recipes.  We were very surprised to see that soybean oil can be incorporated into many of our favorite Latin dishes while, at the same time, providing many heart-healthy benefits.

    Many people don’t even know that they have soybean oil in their pantry already.  As a matter of fact, most vegetable oil is soybean oil!  It’s good for your heart because it has been shown to lower cholesterol levels when used in moderation.  As one of the few non-fish sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, it is also a great source of Vitamin E which is essential to preventing cell damage that may lead to diseases such as cancer and heart disease.  As a Survivor, these are health benefits that are important to me and to overall health of my family.

    I love how versatile soybean oil is and it really can be incorporated into many of our traditional dishes without having to compromise taste.  Also, since it is about the tenth of the cost of other competing oils, I don’t have to make a choice between not going over our grocery budget and having my family enjoy healthier meals.  What could be better than knowing that you are helping to keep your family heart-healthy and saving money at the same time?

With the holidays right around the corner, there is no better time than the present to start planning your heart-healthy recipes using soybean oil.  For more information on how to incorporate it into your favorite recipes, visit the soybean oil website.  Here is one of my personal favorites:

  1. I couyld use it to deep fry instead of using other oils and lard (hey thats how you make true southern fried chicken)

  2. Judy Gardner says

    i dont really use a lot of oil in my cooking unless its some olive oil. on occasion though i do fry some chicken and i would use it then. while its not really healthy we only have it once in a while.

  3. tannawings says

    I could use it for frying fish and that would be alot healthier. I could also use it for eggs. I like soybean oil (I am in soybean country) and know the farmers who grow it!

  4. Blessie Nelson says

    I could replace the other oils that I usually use for sauteing and frying meat or fish or vegetables with soybean oil to really cut down the risk of heart disease

  5. I rarely use any oil when cooking–and I tend to stay away from fried foods even when eating out. There are recipes I would like to try which I haven’t because of oil–maybe I will try using Soy oil in those recipes.

  6. Green Organic Mamas says

    I would love to make some potstickers with the soybean oil and I think they would go perfectly with it. Our favorite in the house is olive oil and sunflower oil, so we have never used soybean before.

  7. I’ve only really used olive oil (I’m Italian) when I cook, so I never really gave much thought to using other oils. This sounds like a little bit healthier, though.

  8. Janet Watson says

    I would use soybean oil instead of using vegetable oil when I make tacos for my family! There are so many uses for soybean oil!

  30. I hadn’t thought of using soybean oil I have to admit – I might have to look into it more now thank you 🙂 x

  31. steve weber says

    I would make a salad dressing out of it. I could also use soybean oil to do a chinese stir-fry.
