Tip of the week: Olive oil in cooking

Olive oil has one of the highest calorie to weight ratios, at about 230 calories per ounce.  While olive oil cannot be consumed by itself, it is a great thing to add to meals to add calories to them.  In addition, you will save weight by not having to bring extra food for more calories.  Olive oil is great on pitas or in pastas and the like.  Make sure to bring a small bottle on your next hike.
