Healthy High Fat Foods To Eat More Of #3: Olives

October 13, 2014 1 min read

I'm not a huge fan of olives, especially when they're added to pizza or pasta. They taste funny, particularly the black ones. Olive oil, on the other hand, I've got no beef with, and I like a drizzle of olive oil on my salad. Turns out that olives are amazing for your overall health! In 100 grams of olives, you get:
  • 115 calories
  • 1.4 grams of saturated fat
  • 8.9 grams of unsaturated fats

Olives and olive oils are rich in oleic acid, an unsaturated fatty acid that plays a significant role in heart health. All olives contain nutrients that protect your cardiovascular system against damage, reduce inflammation in your joints, and prevent free radical damage. Olives and olive oil contain a phytonutrient called Hydroxytyrosol, which has been proven to help prevent both bone loss and cancer. Time to get over my distaste for olives and start eating A LOT more of them!
