Nutrition Values, Calories in Olive Oil

And this exercise can assist where that morning cup of coffee or tea is concerned, too - that is, if you use any type of commercially prepared creamer for a flavoring agent. Generally a serving equals one level Tablespoon. And most people use four to five times that about, making that zero cup of brew contain close to 200 calories when it's all said and done.
