Bellucci Premium makes a statement about why you should include more olive oil in your diet following an article that shares the top 3 foods that contain healthy fats.
According to a Yahoo! Shine article published on October 23rd titled “Get More Good Fats in Your Diet,” there are certain fats that can positively affect your health.
Monounsaturated fatty acids are found in certain foods and can actually help control hunger. These fats also help control blood sugar when the proper serving is consumed.
The article recommends eating these 3 foods to get more healthy fats in your diet:
- Avocado - You can use this as a substitute for cheese on a sandwich, or mash it up for a quick snack.
- Nuts - Nuts are perfect to throw into a lot of dishes. Try adding some to your oatmeal or crushing some up and adding them into pasta. They also make a great snackall by themselves.
- Olive Oil - Use olive oil as a dip for bread or as a light dressing in a salad. Olive oil is also great for roasting vegetables or pan frying your favorite protein, like chicken.
“Since olive oil contains ‘fat,’ some people automatically assume that it negatively affects your health,” says Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Tuscan olive oil producer Bellucci Premium. “In reality, monounsaturated fatty acids are essential to the body and are a great addition to any diet. This is why olive oil rich diets, such as the Mediterranean diet, are considered to be among the healthiest in the world.”
“Moderation is key,” Sexenian advises. “Around 50 grams a day is a healthy amount.”
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
