Sales of Olive Oil in England have dramatically increased recently, as more and more Britons adopt a healthier diet. It's a far cry from years gone by when many people (including my grandparents!) fried everything in beef dripping, sending their cholesterol levels soaring! As people try to adapt a healthier lifestyle in the 21st century, we are now more conscious than ever about what we eat. As people rush home from work, quick meals are now the norm and what could be quicker and more healthier than a stir fried vegetable dish, especially when the oil used is olive oil. We could definitely learn a thing or two from the Mediterraneans who have been using this method of cooking for many years. Extra Virgin Olive Oil in particular has many health benefits. It helps to improve cholesterol levels and reduces the risk of heart attack. It also decrease the risk of developing certain types of cancer, like breast and colon cancer. Sounds like the Mediterraneans have the right idea.
