Extra virgin has a much stronger taste.

I started with Bertolli extra light. Stuff has essentially no taste.

Graduated to just generic olive oil. Extra virgin does have a kick to it...

Light or extra light has diffrent properties than extra virgin first cold pressed. Short story, the light is better for cooking and the extra virgin is better for anything noncooking.

I saute my chicken breasts in a couple of tablespoons of OO and drizzle it over steamed vegetables. Actually, my favorite way to eat it is by dunking slices of french bread in it but thats a no-can-do.

Dude,

Don't do shots of olive oil. That will taste like crap. Drizzle olive oil on salads, cook with it, put it on veggies add spices to your dishes. It is great to have on your food but don't do shots of it.

If you want to add healthy oils to shakes or drinks you can use flax seed oil, borage oil or castor oil,...... just joking on that last one. :lol:

If you're gonna shoot some olive oil down, just have a glass of water ready and take a sip before you swallow the oil. I don't taste a thing... learned that a long time ago doing shots of gin in college..

for smoothies toasted sesame oil rocks. Nuts and animals seem like the most natural way to get fats. I don't think it is likely that you will eat to many nuts, most likely you would go over your fat limit before your nut limit.

Light and extra light olive oil is a poor quality fat. Avoid it.

If you can't handle extra virgin on salads don't worry about it, its not like its necessary for optimal health.

For salads replace it with Avocado Oil or Flaxseed Oil.

For cooking use extra virgin coconut, organic butter, or the fat from organic grass fed meats.
