The Avocado Zest is delicious. It has a fresh, lemon taste.  I drizzle it on my salads. I recommend it to anyone who wants a high quality oil with a hint of citrus for salads and fish.

March towards a healthier lifestyle!

No… this is not about the new step class at your local gym. It’s about you!

March is national nutrition month – a time to look at our eating habits and ask questions about changing our diet.

You’ve probably asked some of these questions:

  • Should I be making changes to my diet?
  • Am I eating enough protein?
  • Should I buy whole grain foods?
  • What about those dark leafy greens?

And in all likelihood, you answered each of those questions with “I don’t know.”

If that’s the case, then there is good news: you’re not alone.

Most of us are unsure of what foods are really good for us and, more importantly, which foods are not good for us. That’s why the Dieticians of Canada are aggressively promoting March as a four-week “boot camp”, where they aim to educate the public on good health through nutrition.

One of the hottest nutritional topics today is oils. When choosing an oil there are many things to consider, including smoke point nutritional value, and purchasing cold pressed extra virgin oils?

Ultimately, when choosing an oil, you want to keep the following in mind:

  • The best oil comes in a dark glass bottle, to keep out light and oxygen which will cause the oil to be rancid.
  • Cold pressed means that minimal heat was used while producing the oil therefore retaining its health properties. Extra virgin often refers to a more quality oil and pure mechanical production.
  • The smoke point of Avocado Oil is higher then any other oil in the world, allowing the oil to maintain all its benefits like Vitamin E.

Thus, it’s no wonder that dieticians across the country are recommending Olivado Avocado Oils to their clients! To learn more go to http://www.olivado.ca/understanding-oils
