Eat more, talk less
Do you know why Lebanese olive farmers (sometimes) have a problem selling their produce? Because the Lebanese don't eat enough olive oil! According the World Olive Oil Council, the per capita consumption of olive oil in Lebanon is a measly 2.4 kg per year. Compare to Syria (5.3 kg), Spain (11.2 kg) and Greece (an unbelievable 20.7). Instead of singing its praise, go buy some of your own olive oil. And stop cooking with soy oil.
