Olives are naturally hight in beautifying oleic acid, and are also one of nature's richest sources of the antioxidant Vitamin E.
Olives are technically a fruit! In fact, they are one of the most mineral rich fruits on Earth. Olives are especially high in calcium and magnesium which help to build strong bones. They also contain vitamins A and E and the beautifying, heart healthy oleic acid. Olives also contain protein and compounds called polyphenols which display anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Plus, olives are known as the most powerful mucus dissolver of any fruit. Too much mucus in your system can cause that cold/flu-like feeling of being clogged and stuffy with puffy eyes and dulled senses. Regular consumption of olives can help to clear out excess mucus and lift the fog.
Some people worry about the fat content of olives, but they contain monounsaturated fats which are much healthier than the trans fats or saturated fats found in other foods. Our bodies need fats to strengthen cell membranes, beautify the skin and lubricate our joints and intestines. Olives are a delicious source of healthy and alkaline plant-based fats.
A little tapenade spread on a romaine lettuce leaf or a slice of cucumber is the favorite way to eat it here at Sunfood.
Other serving ideas include: spread thinly on cucumber or zucchini slices; serve a small scoop on top of vegetable "pasta" (spiralized vegetables) and sauce; serve a small scoop alongside a green salad; spread a thin line down the middle of a cabbage leaf, add some chopped veggies and roll for a tasty wrap; add a tablespoon to your favorite Italian dressing recipe.
