The 5 best oils for humans O.F.C.A.F.

I recently started adding olive oil to my coffee. Startbucks recently started offering. My doctor suggested I take fish oil a while back so those are two I added. Instead of salty chips I started eating nuts. Though they are high in calories, they are good calories as not all calories are equal.

As in most things, its not just quantitative factor but also a qualitative factor.
Not just the quantity of calories but also the quality. Makes a lot of sense to me. In the genre, I am on a quest for the right balance and harmony of diet.

If you have any experience or tips, I am all ears.

Here is something I put together to help me remember the 5 oils I gathered after some research. Yeah, I am not a doctor but in today’s content rich world its not rocket science when it comes to basics for we all are consumers and ginny pigs, at least with fundamental basic stuff like this.
