I've been using liberal amounts of both coconut oil and olive oil in pretty much all of my meals lately. If I were to narrow this down to just one, would coconut oil be the best choice? I love coconut oil raw, and for sauteing/frying. I also love olive oil when in a stir fry, but can't stand it uncooked. I find that it takes less olive oil to keep the food "greasy" and when using coconut oil, my stir frys usually need a second helping in order to smooth things along. So, I'd love to just use coconut oil, but nutritionally speaking, is it better to diversify my cooking oils? I know olive oil has a great monounsaturated vs. polyunsaturated fat ratio, so if I ditch the olive oil, what other sources should I look for to get good amounts of monounsaturated fat?
