Reduce risk of heart disease with Cuchi Organics olive oil

More than a year ago I got to sample the delicious extra virgin olive oil of Cuchi Organics, and now I've got the taste for it again.

Did you know olive oil helps reduce the risk of heart disease and breast cancer? Last month was Breast Cancer Awareness Month by the way.

I really like the extra virgin olive oil sold by sisters Maricarmen & Alina out of their Etsy shop, Cuchi Organics. Their passion is sharing their creations with the world and making sure we care for our planet and our bodies. That's an admirable passion if you ask me.

The sisters are from Spain where they left 10 years ago. Maricarmen is now living in United States and Alina is in Germany. While they may be far a part, they still feel very close. The name Cuchi Organics honors the memory of their mother - Cuchi was her nickname.

And I love this olive oil. Let's face it, unless we're at a restaurant and we're being served bread and olive oil as an appetizer, many of us probably don't consider it for our diet. But we need to make sure we're consuming the right kind. I'm not talking about store bought.

Harvesting the olive tree

From Forbes:
Here’s the hard truth: the olive oil in your pantry, the one you bought for its health benefits and for some sliver of the seductive Mediterranean lifestyle, is most likely a scam. A scam, meaning it probably contains less actual olive oil than you’d ever imagine. A scam, meaning it’s likely been mixed with colorants and other less expensive oils like sunflower-seed oil. A scam, meaning you really have not been getting what you paid for.

About that taste? Prepare yourself. Real olive oil – the good stuff – will be powerful and peppery and it will catch in your throat. You may cough, your eyes may water. But these are in fact good indications that what you’re tasting – finally! – is authentic. It is also full of the reasons, especially flavor and health, that we were drawn to olive oil in the first place.

Check out what else you need to know here. You should get organic olive oil that's extra virgin and produced with wholesome methods, and Cuchi Organics is here to help!

If you're like me, you'll love the oil with bread as a snack or before dinner, but it's also great for pasta and rice. Just a tablespoon for one serving. To keep it fresh, keep the jar in a dark place at room temperature or keep it in the fridge up to two years.

So let's give away some olive oil! Cuchi Organics is graciously offering a jar of organic Spanish extra virgin olive oil and a wooden spoon to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

You can also get 10% off your purchase in the shop with code SOCIAL10 in appreciation of those who follow on Etsy or Instagram.
