Remember how I keep talking about how much I love being a BzzAgent? I get to try all sorts of great products and pass them on to my friends.
BzzAgent recently invited me to try Filippo Berio Olive Oil. It was like they knew that I was trying to eat better and had set a goal to lose 20 lbs this year. On top of that work had us all take a Biometric screening this year to help us get an idea as to where were stand health wise. They checked our glucose, and our cholesterol levels. While mine are OK, they could be better so I am trying to make smarter choices in what I eat. One of the easiest choices is to cut out butter in my cooking as it is high in cholesterol and saturated fats.
If you head over to Filippo Berio's website you can even find a hand substitution chart that shows you how to sub olive oil for butter or margarine. I had no idea that you could use olive oil in baking but apparently you can!
They also have a large library of really awesome recipes, I tried the Broken Spaghetti With Shrimp the other night and it disappeared so fast that I didn't have time to snap a picture to share it with you.
I'm working on some recipes of my own,
here's a sneak peek of one I have coming up!
Stay tuned for the recipe!
