2. Olive oil

Olive oil is rich in so-called “good” monounsaturated fat, which makes it an ideal food for the healthy heart. According to some studies, the replacement of 2 tablespoons saturated fat (which is in the oil and lard) with monounsaturated fats may reduce the risk of heart disease. Other studies have even shown that olive oil has potent anti-inflammatory action. In 1 tablespoon olive oil has 119 calories.
