With science now recognizing that a diet rich in essential fats makes for a healthy heart, brain, joints and weight, we're no longer relegated to just a quick spritz of cooking spray and left longing for moisture, caramelization and flavor. It's OK to go a bit heavier on the plant-based oils, but which ones? With so many oils to choose from, narrowing down the best options for cooking can be daunting. When scanning the array of options, the three factors to keep in mind are: nutritional profile, smoke point and flavor.

 Love it, Like it, Hate it:

Most popsicles are fat-free and relatively low in calories, but that doesn’t mean they’re “good” for us. In fact, most popsicles are a not-so-appealing combo of sugar + artificial food dyes – and if they’re sugar-free, they’re artificially sweetened. But it’s not all doom and gloom on the popsicle aisle: There are a few “love it” options on shelves, and their single-serving packages offer built-in portion control. Find out which ones are best – and which ones to steer clear of – in today’s Get the Skinny with Molly
