Win a Fabulous Basket from Crespo Olives!

Olives are a staple in my house. We love to snack on them or smear tapenade on whole grain crackers. Olives not only taste fantastic, they’re also good for you. Find out why these gems are so healthy then enter to win a fantastic gift basket sponsored by Crespo Olives du Marche.

Fat Facts
Every cell in our body requires fat. It’s one of our body’s primary source of energy and needed in order to transport our fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E & K). Fat also provides structure to every cell in our body, helps protect our internal organs and helps provide our body with insulation and the ability to retain heat.

Fat also plays a role in food. It provides mouth feel (think onion rings) and gives food delicious flavor (think fried chicken)—that’s why the motto at the culinary school I taught at was “fat = flavor.” The key, however, is to choose foods containing healthy types of fats specifically monounsaturated fat.

Olives are a great source of monounsaturated fat, which has been shown to help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and help lower blood pressure. These babies are also full of antioxidants and phytochemicals (plant chemicals that help fight and prevent disease). Research also shows that olives offer a wide range of anti-inflammatory benefits.

    Oh, I also love olives. Hard to choose, but I guess the pitted black herb olives would be my first choice to try.

    I want to try all of them except maybe the blue cheese ones. I’m not much of a blue cheese fan. Though, I used to not like olives and now I love them! So who knows? I follow you on twitter not too.
