Staff Pick: Organic EVOO and Broccoli

“The world’s best vegetable with the world’s best olive oil.”

This week, Pat chose to spotlight two of her favorite items: organic broccoli from our fresh, organic produce section, and Organic Olio Beato Extra Virgin Italian Olive Oil.

She recommends steaming the broccoli, then tossing it with Olio Beato, fresh organic garlic, and sea salt. Trust her, she always knows best.

New Google Tool to Compare Food

Simply type the word “compare,” followed by two types of food, and boom. Google provides a dynamic nutrition chart analyzing both, side by side.

This handy trick was recently discovered by Reddit.com users and the folks at NPR. It can be extremely convenient and useful in certain shopping and cooking situations, as well as very fun. Like… when you want to compare the health benefits of kale to bacon.

However, this tool (though very useful) is unfortunately not perfect. Google does leave a bit of room for further specification of the items being considered, but there are many variables that are left out of the equation, such as “nitty-gritty” preparation details, differing brands, and more.

Give it a try! :)
