Olive Oil Dipping Dishes, The Healthy Essential Fat

Olive Oil Dipping Dishes For Italian Bread Dipping Appetizers

Did You Know That Bread Dipping With Olive Oil Dipping Dishes Contains A Healthy Fat?

We all live with the perception that if we eat fat, we will totally ruin our health and increase the risk of developing various diseases. Practically every individual considers that a healthy meal should contain few or zero amounts of fat. However, there are some aspects that can contradict this perception. During the 1950’s, the Mediterranean diet used in the Greek Island of Crete produced the same fat consumption as in America, but the heart disease and other chronic disease rates were incredibly low. During this period of time, the Cretans were considered one of the civilizations with the longest lifespan on Earth. How can this be possible considering that their Mediterranean diet was full of fat?

The secret may be hidden in the incredible attributes of olive oil, since Cretans consumed from 3 to 5 ounces of olive oil each and every day, according to Ancel Keys. This can be made even more simpler, just by taking your favorite bread and dipping it in an olive oil dipping dish. Serve as an appetizer on a frequent basis. The famous researcher also pointed that Cretans used olive oil in practically every recipe; they even soaked the bread in olive oil. Instead of having breakfast, some Cretans simply drank a wineglass full of olive oil. Since most of the health problems that have affected the Americans during the 1950’s and 1960’s were associated with too much fat consumption, why weren`t the Cretans displaying the same symptoms?

We can`t say that Cretans were an exception to this rule since other countries have displayed the same results. People from the Mediterranean parts of Italy, Spain, and France consumed the same amounts of fat calories as the Cretans, and the heath disease rates were still surprisingly low. However, the Mediterranean diet could not be matched by any other diet from other countries. For example, in Finland, coronary heart disease was really popular amongst those who used to consume high quantities of fat. Moreover, Finland included the shortest life spans compared to any other European country.

How Can Olive Oil Dipping Dishes and Bread Help Reduce The Risk Of Heart Attacks?

Ancel Keys started a research to discover why coronary heart disease is so frequent in this country, so he compared the overweight American men with middle-aged men from Finland. The results confirmed the fact that Finnish men contained higher levels of cholesterol in their blood.

The dietary surveys that followed Keys’s research have proved the fact that Finnish people consume meals that contain high levels of saturated fat. Butter, rich milk, cheese and other similar foods that are rich in saturated fat were preferred by Finnish men.

By simply incorporating olive oil on a well enjoyed snack known as bread dipping with olive oil dipping dishes, you can receive the necessary good fat while you lower the possibility of the bad fats, as well as other health problems.

Following diets that were very low in fat helped the patients to decrease the high blood cholesterol levels within one week. The same studies have also revealed the act that, from all the different types of fatty acids (saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated), the saturated fatty acids increased the blood cholesterol levels the most. Therefore, we can conclude the fact that coronary heart disease and other chronic diseases can be triggered only by a particular type of dietary fat, not all fat in general.

Remember as you shop the Mediterranean diet rules-of-thumb: quality over quantity, fresh over preserved, and whole over processed.

Rather, choose fruit as a healthful and naturally sweet alternative. If fresh fruit is not quite sweet enough to save your sweet tooth, dried fruit is still healthful and often sweeter than its former self. Dried figs, dates, or raisins are all excellent and recommended choices.
