Yes, the motto has been changed from an apple a day to an olive a day. And, considering the nutritional properties of Olives, I am sure that you are going to incorporate it into your everyday diet in order to stay healthy.

  • Light Ingredient:

Olives are much lighter in their calorie content as compared to other snacks since they have higher water and fiber content. Experts have often recommended eating around seven olives in a day, which in total amount to only 37 calories in all. It has been found that a 100 gram portion of Olives provides you with only 150 calories in all. However, a same portion of crisps or chips provides you with 500 calories. On top of that, Olives contain Oleic Acid, a monosaturated fat which benefits your cardiovascular system and helps to fight against cholesterol. 

  • Vitamin Supplement:

The undisputed nutrient value of Olives makes them a natural source of Vitamins. Olives are quite high in Vitamin E and also contain significant amounts of Vitamin A and C. This tends to make Olives an essential part of a diet which is rich in Antioxidants, which protects you against cell damage. 100 grams of Black Olives provide you with around 40% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for Iron. Not only that, since Olives are rich in Fiber, they help aid the digestion and keep your bowel movements regular.

  • Olives as a part of your diet:

Olives are excellent for your Circulatory as well as Digestive Systems and provide an antioxidant effect. This makes them a vital part of your diet. Adding them to your daily diet is also very easy. In most countries, Olives are easily eaten as a snack or an appetizer. They can also be used as an ingredient in a variety of dishes such as pastas, pizzas, stews and salads. You can make your olives sweet, salty, sour and spicy depending on your very own taste.

I am sure that you won’t be finding it very difficult in order to incorporate Olives into your diet plan with the variety of options that are available! After all, there is an olive for every occasion!
