The Benefits of Olive Oil

Photobucket This is my number-one cooking oil. My cupboard is never bereft of olive oil. Allah’s Messenger (S.A.W.S.) said, as transmitted by Tirmidhi: “Eat olive oil and anoint yourselves with it, for it comes from a blessed tree.” Extra-virgin olive oil is the best; it offers the most antioxidant
benefit. Olive oil is healing to the heart, and it also reduces the chances for colon cancer. The benefits of olive oil are many, but to receive those benefits it’s best not to heat olive oil; certainly do not use it for high-temperature cooking or frying, but coconut oil instead. Extra-virgin olive oil is best in salad dressings and possibly for very light sautéing.
