I recently discovered that the vinaigrette that I've been making for years has almost 700 calories from olive oil alone! I didn't think it could taste good with any less and I preemptively felt very deprived knowing I'd have to cut out my favorite food. Last night my husband made dinner for me, along with my "regular" salad. He later told me that he'd cut the total amount of olive oil for the entire salad to 2 tbls--I didn't miss a thing! So happy I can have my salad and eat it too!

I tried every thing over the counter or Rx and nothing worked then I tried Tea Tree Oil from the health food store just wash my face then apply a few drops of oil to my face once a day and I have clearer skin then I have ever have. I know putting oil on sounds counter intuitive but it really worked!
