Nutrition Makeover Part 3: Olive Oil

(Andrew Weil, M.D.) Why add olive oil to your 2014 nutrition makeover? The monounsaturated fat found in olive oil is the healthiest type of fat: it is good for the heart and can lower your risk of heart disease and heart attacks.
Use it as your main cooking oil (be sure not to use high heat, as it can oxidize the delicate oil), in place of butter and margarine in most baked goods, and as a drizzle on vegetables or salads or a dip for bread.
