Olive oil is an incredible oil that is bursting with health benefits and has a delicious flavour. It has antioxidant properties, anti-inflammatory properties and can boost your energy levels.
I shared delicious olive oil recipes on CH Morning Live November 18, 2020, at 7:50 AM. Watch the segment here.
Phoeapolis Olive Oil
Real and authentic EVOO has a fruity or grassy flavour that could be mild to strong but can’t be plain. The peppery finish is also an indication of real and good quality olive oil. You have to make sure you shop for a good quality olive oil. Look for an oil that is made in small batches without any chemical alteration. I also recommend organic olive oil to reduce pesticide content in the oil.
The delicious olive oil recipes in the segment are made with Phoeapolis olive oil. I love this company because they are a family business based in the GTA (support local!) and they have premium quality at a price you will love.
