1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Fats are an important part of a healthy diet because they provide energy, improve cell growth and nutrient uptake and produce important hormones. Olive oil consists not only of healthy monounsaturated fats, but also the only fats that contain large amounts of antioxidants called polyphenols with many potential benefits including fighting inflammation, viruses and tumors. This makes extra virgin olive oil by far the healthiest of all fats.

Want to minimize saturated fat or prioritize heart-healthy fats.
