Personally, I don't think you can go wrong with it. I use it and coconut oil exclusively without issue. An article just came out today touting the benefits of olive oil and IBD.

I have switched to cooking exclusively with olive oil and cut out the canola and vegetable oil. It is a lot better for you and tastes better in my opinion. I really enjoy using it now when I am cooking veggies on the BBQ. That with balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese makes everything taste good.

I too have switched to using only EVOO as I found that the canola oils or soy based oils always gave me cramps. EVOO is very good for us.

EVOO is Delish. smilewinkgrin

For the last week my nutritionist has me doing no carbs or dairy.  I said, for a week I can do it..even though I am against this long term.  For my salads (which I have eaten way to much this week) I have been using oil and vinegar.  I have used EVOO this week and it is so good.  I thought I would miss my Ranch and Blue Cheese dressings, but now I am thinking of only doing oil and vinegar for now on.  Besides, it is suppose to help with cholesterol.  I very rarely use any other oil anymore.

I actually take 2 tsp of EVOO straight every morning with my vitamin D pills since D3 is fat soluble. Plus it's an easy 80 extra calories to start the day.

Been using extra virgin olive oil for years. I don't think it made the slightest difference towards my Crohn's but in general it is a good, healthy oil. Mediterranean food uses tons of it so if you want ideas on how to use it just search for mediterranean recipes.

I've also been cooking with olive oil for years. I also use the butter with olive oil :)
I do notice though, that when I use too much (this happens with any oil, really), I get pretty crampy :\

Olive oil is very good, generally. For those of you who take it straight up, and so long as it's not heated, cold pressed is totally the way to got. Full of good stuffs. Yummay!

I like to take a tablespoon of olive oil, put it in an avocado with just a dash of worstershire sauce. It is so tasty. Once you take out the seed, you can just put the olive oil in the hole left by the seed.

olive oil is best used as a condiment, like in salad dressing or to put on some steamed veggies after they have cooled a bit from cooking. oils dont stand up well to heat and break down thus you are not getting all the good stuff it is touted for. make sure it is extra virgin, cold pressed and in an opaque container and 100% pure olive oil.
