National Greasy Foods Day
Those watching the scale beware. Augment the diet for National Greasy Foods Day on October 25th.
Although not the healthiest of choices, every once in a while, it is okay to enjoy some greasy food.From fried chicken, pizza, nachos, and french fries to bacon and hash brown potatoes, we all like a treat in our regular diet.
Cooking oil types include:
Olive oil – Palm oil – Soybean oil – Canola oil – Pumpkin oil – Corn oil – Sunflower oil – Safflower oil – Peanut oil – Grapeseed oil – Sesame oil – Agran oil – Rice bran oil – Other vegetable oils – Butter and lard.
Oil may be flavored with aromatic flavorings such as herbs, chilies, or garlic.
Greasy foods can be prepared with healthier oils and with much less than average amounts of oil used when cooking, making them much healthier choices.
For the educators and homeschoolers, National Day Calendar tested an assignment in our own classroom and made the material ready for you to use.
