Yup, you can't get the emulsion without the oil.

I like just putting alot of fresh squeezed lemon on a salad, it brings out a wonderful taste in all the fresh vegetables.

Runners World magazine mentioned recently a study done that indicates a bit of healthy fat like olive oil in salad dressing helps the body absorb a greater percentage of the nutrients in the rest of the salad's ingredients. They don't explain why though. I found that interesting.

Those nutrients are probably fat soluble.

The fat soluble vitamins are A,D,E, and K.

I'm in my skinny jeans! I've been eating big breakfasts (today's took me 10 minutes to make), a moderate lunch, and salads or veggies for dinner, sometimes meat, for 10 days. I tried these jeans on last Friday...had to "suck it in" to zip them. Today, they zip right up.

To check my breakfast regime, see:

What have you had for breakfast lately?

I am not hungry, I don't have afternoon or evening cravings, and I don't feel deprived. I do think, however, that eating "grains" instead of bread with breakfast makes a difference in combination with the greens. The DH eats toast with his breakfast. He ate grains yesterday and was so full at lunch, he didn't finish his salad. He is an afternoon (no--all day grazer). He said that he was surprised at how full he was all day.

I committed (to myself) to try it for 30 days, give or take. I'd say try it for a week, even 3-4 days.

Thanks--I didn't have a lot to lose--maybe 5-7 lb (no scale, just the Skinny Jean test), all I did was change when I ate my big meal of the day. It was so easy. I thought it would take until the end of July to get into my skinny jeans. I didn't cut out ice cream or alcohol, just changed what I ate for breakfast and what I ate for supper. And, no snacks during the day--not hungry, no soda pop (don't drink more than 1-3 cans of Coke / month).
