This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pompeian for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I am super excited that I am down 7 pounds since I started watching what and how I eat. I think by choosing more good for me foods, my body is reacting to that, and I am getting slimmer and fitter.
One of my major changes was straying from all kinds of oils and sticking with just olive oil for the most part. It is a good fat and can really flavor up your food — like this yummy Beef-Stir Fry recipe that I made the other night.
One of my favorite brands of Olive oil is Pompeian Olive Oil. The grapeseed oil really enhances the flavor of your food and can make any greek meal taste SO authentic. A chef secret for decades, grapeseed oil has similar health benefits to olive oil, but it is even more versatile for cooking due to its light taste and high smoke point. Trust me when I say that all chefs use this delectable flavored oil
Another recipe that I found that sounds extremely delicious and one I will be trying soon is Smoky Fried Chickpeas. I love Chickpeas anyway — so when I found this recipe, I knew it was going into my recipe “to make” catalog.
