Why do we love Olive Oil?

The health benefits of olive oil are unrivaled, and research reveals more benefits nearly every day. In fact, we are only just beginning to understand the countless ways olive oil can improve our health, and our lives. Olive oil is the cornerstone of the Mediterranean diet — an essential nutritional mainstay for the world’s longest-living cultures. Many of the health-promoting effects of the Mediterranean diet have been attributed to olive oil consumption.
Replacing butter and other less healthy fats with olive oil has been shown to aid in the prevention of a myriad of diseases and counter effects of aging. One prominent cardiologist recommends at least two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil each day to enjoy the many ways olive oil can be beneficial to your health and well being.

 
The Goddess’s Gift: According to Greek mythology, the creation of the olive tree was a result of a contest held between two Olympian Gods, Athena and Poseidon. Poseidon, the god of the sea, and Athena, the goddess of wisdom, held a contest in which the winner would become patron of a newly built city in Attica. The god with the most precious gift presented to the citizens would have the city named after him. Poseidon decided to struck a rock with his trident and as water began to rush out, a winged horse appeared. Next, Athena struck the rock with her spear and a magnificent tree grew at the gates of the city’s Acropolis. Charmed with the tree and its fruits, the residents of the new city and their king (Cecrops) decided that Athena’s gift was more valuable and declared the goddess of wisdom the victor and themselves Athenians for life. To this day, an olive tree still stands where this event took place.
