Will you be cooking a lot this holiday season?
Don’t forget the EVOO; look for oil in dark bottles (it hates light) and store in a cool place (it hates heat, too). In terms of its health benefits, extra-virgin olive oil has been linked to:
> such cardioprotective effects as reductions in blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose.
> lower levels of inflammation, a key factor in chronic disease.
> reductions in cognitive decline and possible protection against Alzheimer’s.
