Olive Oil

Olive Oil

The high monounsaturated fat content in olive oil may help lower cholesterol levels and prevent heart disease and stroke. The key is to stick with a 1-tablespoon serving size providing 120 calories and 14g of fat. To help keep portions in control, put your oil into a spray bottle and spritz the oil versus pouring it. Whether you are using olive oil for marinades, dips, dressing, or sautéing, a little goes a long way.
