Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) has many health benefits because it’s not a refined oil and as such it holds onto all of its natural properties. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US. Good quality extra virgin olive oil can help reduce the risk of heart disease, because of its high levels of polyphenol. Polyphenols are a well-known anti-inflammatory antioxidant that helps lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

While the key ingredient to the Spanish breakfast is extra virgin olive oil there are a variety of foods Spaniards eat for breakfast such as: fruits, milk, bread, tomatoes, coffee, teas, ham, and many others.
Typical Spanish Breakfast:
a glass of orange juice or coffee
a whole wheat toast with a couple slices of Serrano Spanish ham, two tomato slices, and two teaspoons of Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil on top.
extra: a few slices of fresh cheese or a non-fat yogurt
As you can see the breakfast is light and easy to make but perfectly well-balanced by being rich in fiber and vitamins, and it has all the necessary calories to get your day started.
If you have time you could also make a certain loaf of bread that is typical from the region of Andalusia, where Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes from.
about three cups of flour
three tablespoons of milk
1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder and yeast
three tablespoons of Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil
a cup and half of water
a spoonful of salt
a spoonful of sugar.
First, mix about 1/2 a cup of flour with the milk, baking powder, and yeast. Roll it all into one firm ball and then set it aside in a bowl covered with warm water for about ten minutes. Once the flour has risen mix it with the rest of the other ingredients to make it into a bigger ball. After ten minutes of mixing the dough put it in a bowl and cover it for about an hour to let it rise more. After the hour divide the dough into many different pieces and place them in the pan either by laying them flat or long ways. Put it in the oven at about 350 degrees for about ten minutes.
Later, set it aside to cool off and when the loaf is hard cut it in slices for breakfast.
