Olive oil is such a healthy fat. Did you know olive oil contains a potent mix of antioxidants that can lower a classic symptom of PCOS, namely heart-damaging LDL “bad” cholesterol? At the same time, olive oil leaves your HDL “good” cholesterol untouched. Keep in mind that “light” olive oils are usually more processed than extra-virgin or virgin olive oils and are lighter in color but not in fat or calories.

A serving of almonds provides 35% of the Daily Value (DV) for vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that may help protect against the onset of the cognitive decline known as Alzheimer’s Disease. Compared with other nuts, pecans have one of the highest levels of phytosterols – a group of plant chemicals that may help protect against cardiovascular disease. Lastly, walnuts contain lots of an omega-3 fat called alpha linolenic acid, which reduces C-reactive protein (CRP), an artery inflammatory marker that is associated with heart disease.

Don’t be afraid of “healthy fats.” Their health benefits are many! Add this nutrient rich recipe to your “Food as Medicine” arsenal
