This month I bring you two of my favourite (very easy) heart healthy recipes!
Olives and olive oil are a great source of a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid. This fat provides great anti-inflammatory qualities. If you’ve heard of the numerous health benefits of the Mediterranean diet it is largely due to the fat that this diet includes many olives/olive oil and other healthy fats.

3 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
