Olive Oil

It’s always an unexpected joy when something so incredibly delicious turns out to be so incredibly good for you and if you haven’t learned that about olive oil yet, you’re about to! 

Olive oil has been a staple of Mediterranean cultures for thousands of years, dating back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans, and it remains the most popular cooking oil in the region to this day. In fact, nutrition experts believe the Mediterranean basin is home to some of the longest-living populations precisely because their typical daily diet is so abundant in healthy fats from olive oil, nuts, and fatty fish. 

Compared to other cooking oils, olive oil has the unique potential to deliver a one-two punch to chronic and degenerative diseases from the potent polyphenol compounds found in extra virgin olive oil and the high percentage of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) found in all grades.  As a result, olive oil consumption has been associated with everything from improved cholesterol levels to better mood to stronger bones.
