Olive oil is produced by grinding olives into an olive paste and extracting the oil by using large millstones.  Olive oil can be unrefined, extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and refined.  Unrefined EVOO retains its natural antioxidants and vitamins, which are typically lost during the refining processing. 

Extra virgin olive oil is high in oleocanthal, a natural polyphenol compound that has the same anti-inflammatory properties as ibuprofen.  Polyphenols are packed with antioxidants.

Olive oil is a great all around choice and is our #1 oil, despite the amount of saturated fat per serving.

Best Uses

Salad dressings, marinades, dips, sauces, butter replacement, drizzle over cooked pasta or vegetables. EVOO has a smoke point of around 405°F, which is high enough for most cooking applications.

Just 1 ounce of chia seeds far exceeds your daily recommended intake of omega-3 fatty acids—50g. Chia seeds contain all essential amino acids for human nutrition: isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, histidine, and valine (Sandoval-Oliveros & Paredes-López, 2013). Among all amino acids, glutamine is in highest concentration and histidine is the least present.
