When people think of olive oil, they almost always think about the Mediterranean diet. That’s because olive oil is a key ingredient in many recipes from the Mediterranean region. However, because of it’s wonderful taste and amazing health benefits, olive oil is also growing in popularity outside the Mediterranean. That is no surprise because olive oil has a way of enriching and complimenting dishes, such as fish, pastas, meats, salads, soups and so forth. It really is a wonderful ingredient to add to almost any dish. So much so, that olive oil has become a staple in my household.
So, today I’m going to share the health benefits of olive oil that led me to fall in love with it and use it in so many of the dishes I prepare. I’ll also cover some important tips I learned in regards to choosing and storing olive oil. And of course, the show wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t mention a couple tasty ways that you can add a little more olive oil to your diet.
