Neomega Avocado Oils…Cooking Healthy For Our Kids

Neomega Avocado Oils are infused with herbs are a healthy substitute for cooking oils.

I hear it a lot from other parents. The food in our grocery stores are unhealthy. They are filled with high fructose corn syrup, chemicals and hormones. It can be nerve racking reading every label and deciphering the ingredients listed. What’s a parent to do? This is exactly how Judit Beres felt before she set out to change how parents cook meals for their children, and has since started Neomega Oils, a Cary-based, mom-owned company.

Judit a former clinical researcher for a local pharmaceutical company took her layoff as a sign to stay-at-home with her 8-year-old son and 4-year-old twin girls. Meal times had become a battle with her children from pickiness to allergies, and she was determined to maintain the peace and feed her children healthy food. Judit used her research background to discover a healthy, everyday cooking oil. She began her search with sunflower oil, an oil she grew up using in her home country of Romania Then she discovered avocado oil, an oil you don’t normally find on the grocery store shelves, yet filled with plentiful nutrients.

Judit decided to take her discovery to the next level by adding herbs. The herbs would be infused as opposed to flavored like my grocery store brands. Infused herbs are brilliant because you can not only taste the herbs, but you can benefit from the herb nutrients as well.

Judit offers many types of avocado oils- Rosemary, Roasted Garlic, Chili (very spicy), Basil and Citrus. Each oil works well with different foods.

Rosemary- Meat and potatoes
Roasted Garlic- poultry
Chili-spicy, makes a great topping on gluten-free chips
Basil- eggs and pasta
Citrus- salad dressing

Neomega Avocado Oils are a healthy substitute for cooking oils.

After tasting all the oils, I decided to try the Basil Avocado Oil on something we make a lot in my house– omelettes. Yes, I make my son an omelette every morning for breakfast. I switched out my regular canola oil (the non organic canola oils contain saturated fats) with the Basil Avocado Oil in the pan. While I let the oil get warm, I chopped up about 4 slices of turkey. When the oil is nice and hot, I put the turkey in the pan and saute it for a bit. I beat 2 eggs in a coffee cup and add a dash of pepper, and beat a little more. Than I pour the eggs in the pan with the stove set to medium-low heat. It takes about 2.5 minutes for the egg to cook, and then I flip it over and cook some more. When the turkey gets brown, I carefully fold the omelette in half and place on a plate.

My son ate his eggs like usual and didn’t really notice a difference, but I knew that the avocado basil oil added nutrients to his body.

An avocado is a fruit that contains monounsaturated fat aka a “good fat”, a nutrient booster that helps the body absorb fat-soluble nutrients, and also provides 20 essential nutrients, including a good source of fiber and folate, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid. The basil herb also provides nutrients such as Vitamin A, an antioxidant and good for vision as well Iron.

Now that you know Neomega Avocado Oils are delicious and beneficial, you need to know where you can purchase them.
You can purchase Neomega Avocado Oils at Earth Fare in Morrisville, The Butcher Shop in Cary, Harmony Farms, and of course through the Neomega Online store.

      Definitely give these oils a try. The rosemary oil smelled as good as it tasted, the garlic is nice and not too strong, and the chili is hot. Enjoy.

    Interesting! I’d heard avocado oil is a good option, but I hadn’t found any in stores whenever I looked for it. These look like nice options 🙂

      Avocados are very healthy. Neomega can be purchased in many local stores and online. It’s good knowing healthy food can be found locally. 🙂

    I’ve been using avocado oil (not neomega, just the whole foods brand) for a few months now in my cooking, and while it’s delicious I have one note – For the first week I was producing the most noxious smelling gas I ever have in my life! I don’t know if it was just getting my gut flora rebalanced, but it was gone after a week. Glad I stuck with it, it tastes SO much better than vegetable oil.

      I would definitely try Neomega because it’s infused with herbs and smells delicious.
