    1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in the shake or what? I've wanting to add some extra fat to my diet.


    I had $1 coupon off Crisco brand olive oil and then some coupon that gave me a box of whole grain pasta if I purchased the oil so I went ahead and picked it up.

    Never thought of that. I was just thinking about adding a tablespoon to my shakes but I'll give that a try.

    Olive oil tastes good... if you have a cork&olive near you, they have real good olive oil; or just get some from your grocery store.

    Be sure its in the dark container, i also dont take most of my EFA's with carbs. If i take a tbsp then i just pour it into my shake or just drink it, doesnt bother me.

    i think it has something to do with the keepability (if that's a word) of the olive oil... something about it being more prone to going bad quicker if more light can get into the bottle (kinda like beer)

    mine's in one of those clear plastic squirt bottles (like the yellow and red ones for mustard and ketchup) in the cabinet above the stove

    I put about a tablespoon of flax oil into my shakes.
