Carlson Olive Your HeartIt’s the holidays, so it makes sense that our thoughts are consumed with turkey, ham, prime rib, cookies, cakes, pies, and of course – sugarplum fairies dancing around in our heads. But are you thinking about olive oil? Probably not. But maybe you should be thinking about olive oil! We’ve partnered with Carlson to talk about olive oil during the holidays.

The American Heart Association recommends subbing out bad fats (like saturated and trans fats) for monosaturated and polyunsaturated good fats – found in something simple, like olive oil. Olive Your Heart(R) by Carlson includes not only the good fats and antioxidents, but also offers important omega-3s by adding fish oil! By using this olive oil for your holiday cooking, you’re sneaking healthy benefits into each meal!

Olive Your Heart is available in a natural olive oil, or lemon, basil, or garlic flavored oil. These oils retail at $19.98 and can be purchased at, or natural grocery stores near you.

You can find plenty of recipes on Carlson’s website, but we’ve compiled some great gluten-free recipes from Gluten Free & More that would be great paired with Olive Your Heart olive oil!
