It’s likely you know less about olive oil than you think you do. If you are picking up a three gallon jug from your local grocery store without checking the label first you may be surprised when you taste freshly-harvested, fresh-pressed olive oil for the first time. In addition to being great tasting, olive oil is a healthy, plant-based fat that can easily be incorporated into a keto diet.
