    Olive oil is a superfood, but only in moderation.

    Using too much oil
    Yes, olive oil is a 'good' fat. But the kitchen staple is also crazy-dense calorie wise - a single tablespoon clocks in at 120 calories. That may not sound like a lot, but if you're not paying attention, it's easy to use as much as three times that amount. Sticking to that single tablespoon allowance can be especially hard with vegetables, since they tend to absorb oil quickly. A helpful trick? Lightly steam your veggies (or protein) to cook them through before adding them to a stir-fry.
