What a great addition to any healthy meal!
I received this kit in the mail.
One FULL bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Plus some $1.00 off coupons!
Okay, here's the deal. Excited for free stuff YESSS. But the taste?
Well I'm not a professional when it comes to Olive Oil and the Variety. Usually, I grab the cheapest I can find since they can be pretty expensive. It's often Great Value from Walmart.
HOWEVER, this added a great taste to my meal. Nothing Bitter. It is 100% natural. Learn how they make the olive oil here.
They even encourage a mediterranean diet because "People who live in the Mediterranean region in countries like Italy and Greece have the lowest rates of heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease, and have the highest adult life expectancies!" Learn more about that here.
One of the fabulous things about this package was this little guy right here:
It came with measurements to help you sub this olive oil for butter/margarine. I absolutely love this idea. Very helpful. It was the first time I realized I had been pouring waaaaayyy to much Olive Oil in the past. Now it will LAST! I know that I won't feel bad about spending a few more dollars on this olive oil at all. Now that I know how much I should be using it is really worth it.
The day I received my package I went forth and created a simple meal. That's my thing. I am NO Betty Crocker and if I can find a simple way to eat anything while still being healthy, I will.
I got this idea from blogilates.com. Cassie is a great cook and her recipes are doable!
Here's what I made:
Eggs, Fresh cut Green Beans, Fresh Goat Cheese, and some hot sauce.
The outcome was great. Hubby and I enjoyed a nice satisfying meal.
The kit included a recipe for broken spagetti with shrimp. I think I will try that next.

(If you know me, you'll know it will be crafty. :))
Will I continue to use Filippo Berio? YES. For about $7 for a 16 oz thats not bad at all.
