omega-6 fatty acids. Many nu- tritional experts suggest that a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is optimum when it’s less than 4:1. Hemp seed registers at about 3:1, which is quite good. Most of all, hemp oil has a beautiful dark green color and a delicious, nutty flavor. As a bonus, it is a good source of gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), a type of omega-6 fat-

ty acid that is not prevalent in our food system, is associated with heart health, and has anti- inflammatory properties. Being Italian, I love the fla- vor of a good extra-virgin olive oil. Most extra-virgin olive oil is unrefined, and oil from the first pressing has been found to have the most health ben- efits. Many of the health ben- efits of the Mediterranean diet

have been attributed to the in- take of olive oil, rich in heart- protective polyphenols. Most of this oil’s fat content comes from oleic acid, a monounsatu- rated, omega-9 fatty acid. Ol- ive oil is not, however, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, so for op- timal health benefits, I usually mix it with hemp oil or a small amount of flax seed oil. Never cook with hemp or flax seed oil, as high temperatures destroy their beneficial proper- ties.

Guy & Peggy Ross Sonoma County in an elevated state of positivity! Pikes Peak is the highest summit of the southern Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, in North America. The ultra- prominent 14,115-foot peak is located in Pike National Forest, 12 miles west of downtown Colorado Springs, Colorado. The mountain is named in honor of American explorer Zebulon Pike, who was unable to reach the summit. The summit is higher than any point in the United States east of its longitude.
