I wanted to tell you about one of my favourite cooking ingredients that I always use when cooking, be that for a savoury dish, sweet dish or even a dish that doesn’t involve standing over the cooker (berry bars!). In particular Supernatures rapeseed oil is Scotlands answer to the meds traditional olive oil as the weather is particularly great for the rapeseed crop to flourish thanks to the long days and cooling temperatures of what we call our “summer” and of course rain.
I absolutely love Supernature rapeseed oil, not only is it low in “bad fats” and exceptionally high in “good fats” (monounsatured and polyunsaturated fats) it is… you guessed it great for the skin thanks to the high Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and its vitamin E content. Infact I concluded it is more beneficial for you than olive oil (in my own opinion) as a result of a tad nutritional analysis that I carried out.
Thank you high content of vitamin E! You are what we want to stay young, once again if you are one of those from the group who are embracing the ageing process then all be it and good for you. However vitamin E is an antioxidant that will help fight free radicals (our enemies) that give us lines and wrinkles. As for the lack of “glow” in our skin as we age the omega rich nutrients found in this bottle will make your appearance seem like a halo is shining down on you!
So splash this oil into everything and anything, just make sure you give your skin it somehow if your not in the cooking spirit (this morning I took a couple teaspoons of it straight), oh and thanks to the variety of flavours, (I have oregano and ginger as well as the original one) it just adds another reason why this is the oil our skin loves!
