With the health benefits of a Mediterranean diet once again hitting the headlines, social media is buzzing with the latest way to include this ancient elixir into your daily routine.
Have you perked up your mornings with #EVOO Coffee!?
While it may sound strange, adding a splash of olive oil to your morning cup can be surprisingly tasty and provide a real energy boost! To make your own ‘coffee with a kick’, simply add one teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil to a cup of freshly brewed coffee and stir gently. You can even add a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg to give it a unique twist. Alternatively, whisk it into milk or plant-based drinks for a frothy latte.
If adding #EVOO to your coffee doesn’t appeal, why not whip up a salad full of locally sourced ingredients; salad leaves, and other spring vegetables, then top it off with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. You could even add some crunchy bacon bits or crumbled feta cheese for an extra zing. Use nuts or crispy chilli for a vegan twist.
From creamy coffee drinks prepared with a hint of olive oil to seasonal salads made with locally grown ingredients, you’ll find plenty of delicious options that will make your taste buds dance.
