Unrefined Oils

A majority of these recipes use unrefined extra-virgin olive oil because it is readily available. There are other types of unrefined oils that you may use in place of olive oil. A health food store should have a good selection. Be sure to check the label to make sure the oils are cold pressed, raw, and extra virgin. Some raw oils include sesame, sunflower, almond, evening primrose, flax, hemp, poppy seed, and coconut.
