Lard is actually not that bad for you. Just google it and you will find that it contains oleic acid (good for battling depression), lowers LDL levels, and leaves the good HDLs constant. It's one of the oldest forms of fats used in cooking and is much better for you than shortening, margarine, or butter.
Not to mention it is so much tastier in cooking and makes the best pie crusts ever. All this being said, what are your thoughts on lard and would you consider incorporating it in your diet? SUPER CURIOUS.
