If you're looking to switch up the kind of oil you're using on salads and such, hemp oil is a great alternative. Nutiva's Organic Cold-Pressed Hemp Oil is unrefined and contains a 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. This helps the body metabolize fat better than flax.

Rich in not just omega-fatty acids, but fiber and protein as well, hemp has a light and nutty flavor and can be used in a variety of ways. Nutiva's website lists several recipes incorporating the oil, from hemp basil pesto to curried quinoa and carrot cake wraps. Ideal for cooking at low to medium temperatures, it is made from certified organic and non-GMO raw hemp seed that is also always chemical-free.
