Say no to hydrogenated oils!

So, I'm trying to cut hydrogenated oils out of my diet completely. I keep hearing more and more crazy crap about them and I've decided I don't want to put that into my body. Last night, I was making biscuits and the recipe called for shortening, I reached for it and my roommate was like "you do realize that shortening is hydrogenated oil, right?" And so it is! So, I ended up using margarine (soy garden, non-hydrogenated!) instead. But, I was wondering what else I could use to subsitute for shortening. Like, I have a no-bake cookie recipe that relies heavily on shortening, I don't know if margarine would work well in that situation.

So, any suggestions for shortening substitutes would be great!
