Nourishment Notes

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats. These types of fats may help to reduce the risk of heart disease. The oleic acid in olive oil may also reduce inflammation.


Citrus foods, such as limes, lemons, or oranges, can help add flavor to dishes when foods may taste bland.


Herbs can help add flavor to dishes that may have little to no taste.
