    This traditional olive oil bread hails from the Mediterranean region. This bread is dense and fluffy inside, shielded by a delicious crust to give it a little extra texture. This bread is great for dipping, or as a pallet cleanser. Top it with anything from herbs to cheeses and set your taste buds ablaze; a perfect midday snack, pair with your favorite red wine and you cannot go wrong. I take mine with a little oil, vinegar, and rosemary.

    Health Benefits 

    Oleocanthal, a phytonutrient in olive oil, mimics the effect of ibuprofen which reduces inflammation. It has been shown to decrease risk of breast cancer and fights recurrence. Rich in monounsaturated fats olive oil protects from many chronic diseases such as diabetes type 2 and heart disease. A new study from France reveals that elderly people who consume olive oil daily may protect themselves from a stroke. It has been proven to fight against osteoporosis with daily consumption positively affecting bone density.
