Eating oil free in Lagos has been one hell of a struggle! It’s fine when I cook for myself but when someone else cooks, it goes straight out of the window. Most times I’ve been out all day or I’ve got home really hungry and the last thing I want to do is have to recook so I just eat what’s available. Today yam fries were available, I was starving… I gave in and served mine up with lettuce and chilli hummus..the fries weren’t greasy so it didn’t bother me too much but it won’t be my go to.
For those of you who keep asking why some people choose to stay away from oils, it’s just because we prefer to eat foods in their whole form. We get oils from the whole avocado rather than just eating only avocado oil. There are more nutrients in the whole food than in just the extracted oil. I suppose you can compare it with drinking orange juice when you can eat the whole orange for more fibre and extra micronutrients. I hope this makes sense ?
