Olive oil = healthy oil

February 19, 2011 11:21pm CST
Olive oil, long considered to be healthy oil, is indeed beneficial to the heart. There have been a research found that people who were served a meal with olive oil and bread appear to have healthier blood vessels. Are you the one who are very particular with what you are going to consume in your daily meals especially cooking oil ?

I try to use healthy ingredients when I am cooking. I use the olive oil daily. It also adds flavor to the food. There are some recipes that would do better with the canola oil and I've tried substituting olive oil but end up going back to the canola oil because of the taste. I haven't bought regular corn oil or vegetable oil in years.

It's no harm to try other vegetable oil as per your personal favour.

Olive Oil - Olive Oil, a healthy oil
I am one of those very particular about the food I eat so Olive oil being a real healthy oil is approved to me. I do cook mostly with olive oil although when deep frying I would switch to grapeseed oil which is a more stable oil and can withstand high heat. But for my salad of course I prefer Olive oil and even for other recipes that will not require deep frying.

There are many reports say about that. Olive oil is very good for health. There are many dishes are used it. However, the price is quite expensive. So, I don't use it in daily meals.

It's too expensive to use it as cooking oil. It is used as cosmetics ingredient more usually.
