October 25, 2017: National Greasy Food Day
Today is National Greasy Food Day...a day you get to indulge in the least healthy foods you can find!
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 awhile 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 normal 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.
