Alessi Breadsticks Made With Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Members Were Sparked
I used to buy these all the time. They are made with healthy olive oil and come in several varieties including Rosemary & Plain Thin Breadsticks. 9 Sticks are 110 Calories. They make a nice crunchy addition to a lunch with string cheese or for a snack. A little strange note: they come wrapped in little packages of 6 per package in a box. A serving size is 9 - so you have to open a second package to get your serving. They are a product of Italy.

1/2 the Calories & Fat - All the Flavor: Hellmann's Olive Oil Mayonnaise
Hellmann's Mayonnaise Dressing made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains just half the calories and fat of the Regular Hellmann's Mayonnaise - and ALL the flavor. And it's made from Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Soybean Oil. Personally, I think it tastes way better than the "light" or "fat free" versions of mayonnaise! 1 Tablespoon is 50 calories, 5 grams of fat, 5 mg cholesterol, 120 mg sodium and less than a gram of carbohydrate.
Researchers in Seville, Spain found that the healthy phenolic compounds in virgin olive oil have a strong antibacterial effect, so incorporating virgin olive oil into your diet may help treat or prevent painful stomach ulcers. Olive oil is also good for your heart. It offers significant protection for your heart against disease.
