Go ahead, pour it on. That extra virgin olive oil or EVOO as Rachel Ray calls it, protects your brain against memory loss, preserves your ability to learn and cleans your brain to avoid Alzheimer’s.
EVOO keeps the connections between brain cells healthy and working at top capacity.
Olive oil plays a big role in the Mediterranean diet. This diet leads to a reduced risk of heart disease, improves weight control and bone health and regulates blood sugar.
It doesn’t take much to incorporate more olive oil in your diet.
In your cabinet, put it right next to your vegetable oil and when you reach for the veggie oil, just ask yourself, “Can I use olive oil instead?”
It will take just 21 days to change your habits. And, there’s no sweaty exercise involved!
