Got some olive oil?

In this recipe I am using heart healthy olive oil whose fatty acids and phenolic compounds may help prevent heart disease, obesity, certain cancers and type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown that people who consumed 25 milliliters (mL), about 2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil daily for 1 week showed less oxidation of LDL cholesterol and higher levels of antioxidant compounds, particularly phenols, in the blood.

Butter from grass-fed cow?

Butter is rich in short and medium chain fatty acids, including even small amounts of lauric acid. It is rich in antioxidants as well, in the form of beta carotene, vitamin E, and selenium. It is one of the best sources of vitamin A. Because living grass is richer in vitamins E, A, and beta-carotene than stored hay or standard dairy diets, butter from dairy cows grazing on fresh pasture is also richer in these important nutrients. The naturally golden color of grass-fed butter is a clear indication of its superior nutritional value.

Anchovies anyone?

Swimming with brain-benefiting fatty acids, anchovies actually contain 10 times as many omega-3s as tuna, generally without the high levels of brain damaging mercury found in bigger fish. Higher omega-3 levels during pregnancy and in childhood are increased to higher IQs. They also contain a healthy dose of mood- and immune-regulating vitamin D.
