Get an oil change.
The NND replaces olive oil with canola oil (also called rapeseed oil); it has a more neutral taste and boasts even more heart-healthy omega-3s. Of all the vegetable oils, it's the lowest in saturated fats—7 percent compared with olive oil's 14 percent. And consuming canola oil daily (in place of a similar amount of saturated fat) has been shown to cut coronary heart disease risk. Because of its high smoke point, it works well for stir-frying, grilling, baking and sautéing; use it to roast parsnips and potatoes or sauté leafy greens.
