The US is overdosing by a factor of 10 on polyunsaturated food – vegetable oil alone comprises 25-40% of the average American’s daily calories – and these oils overwhelm our metabolism and cause chronic pain, colitis, obesity, fatigue and more, argues Cate Shanahan, MD (media features include “Good Morning America”, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED” and more), who studied biochemistry and genetics at Cornell University and serves as the Lakers’ PRO Nutrition program director.
Vegetable oil is an industry term you often see on food labels with the disclaimer that the product ‘may contain one of the following’ and it’s always soy, canola or one of the seed oils. But in the processing, new molecules have been created and they are toxic.
In DEEP NUTRITION: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food (Flatiron Books; Hardcover; January 2017), Dr. Cate discusses how:
vegetable oils attack the brain at 7 distinct vulnerability points using 7 distinct strategies
- all 7 strategies are at work in causing autism and other childhood neurological disorders
- vegetable oils make your brain more susceptible to damage by sugar
- eliminating these oils enables symptoms of various brain disorders to improve, from autism to Alzheimer’s
- there are 5 specific kinds of foods you should eat to optimize brain health

I found this recipe while I was browsing and I thought my husband might really like it. He loves his eggs! Omelets are like pizza – everyone seems to want something different on them. This looks like it would be a fun way to get personalized eggs for everyone in the family, all at once, without having to wait your turn. What a neat idea!
For a fun and easy morning meal, try these small-scale egg dishes. Baked in individual muffin cups, they ensure that everyone gets the mix-ins they like.
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4 cup half-and-half
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Assorted mix-ins (such as shredded cheese, diced vegetables, and cooked and chopped bacon, ham, or sausage)
- Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
- Heat your oven to 350º F and coat a 6-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- Whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, and salt in a medium bowl, then evenly distribute the egg mixture among the muffin cups.
- Add about 2 tablespoons of mix-ins to each cup, then sprinkle on a bit of Parmesan cheese, if you like.
- Bake the frittatas until they are puffy and the edges are golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. (If necessary, run a butter knife around the edge of each one to loosen them before removing them from the pan.) Makes 6 mini frittatas.
