Make sure your olive oil is fresh

Everyone knows by now (or should know) that olive oil is one of the "healthier" cooking oils, and can lower total cholesterol as well as the unwanted LDL (low density lipoprotein) fraction in your blood.
But many people lose track of the freshness of their olive oil bottles. And as olive oil loses freshness over time, it loses some of the antioxidant properties which make it so valuable.

Health tip: make sure when you buy your olive oil that it is no older than one year, and use it before the next year is up.
