Wellness Tip
Storing Olive Oil
Olive oil is not like a good wine; it does not improve with age. According to our registered dietitian, once opened, you should use the oil within three months for optimum flavor. Store it away from light and heat, in a tightly sealed container. If you store olive oil in the refrigerator this is OK too. Some believe that this might affect its flavor a little bit but it also improves the shelf life of your oil. Substituting olive oil for other fats can be a heart-healthy cooking strategy!

Recipe
Eggplant - Tomato Lemon Dip
Category: Dips
Description: Eggplant Dip has a great texture with a tangy, vinegary, seasoned taste that is mellowed with the pita. You also can smear the dip inside warm crepes for a different kind of presentation.
While it is generally thought of as a vegetable, eggplant is actually a fruit.
Eggplant is very low in sodium, fat and cholesterol, and contains substantial amounts of many essential nutrients. One cup of cooked eggplant has only 28 calories, and it is an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, which helps to remove toxins from the body, lowers cholesterol and reduces the risk of colon cancer.
