And not willing to buy anything online right now.
I consider olive and avocado to be fruits, so the oils from them would probably be better categorized as "fruit oils." I love olive oil and I dump it over everything when I'm at my parents' house because it doesn't freak them out as much as when I pour bacon drippings over everything

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
