The Scoop about Avocados & Green Olives

The amazing superfood avocado is great to add to your daily diet. Most call call it a vegetable, thanks to its green hue and savory taste, but the avocado is technically a fruit, and even more specifically, a single-seeded berry. There are few, if any other, other superfoods that are as chocked-full of essential nutrients as are avocados. One medium-size avocado has about 215 total calories. Yes, that’s a boat-load of calories. However, because of the healthy fat, fiber and phytochemical content, this superfood should help you lose weight, not gain weight.

Olives are also technically classified as fruits. The high monounsaturated fat content of green olives is associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Recent research studies also indicate that the monounsaturated fat found in olives (and cold-pressed olive oil) can help to decrease blood pressure. Green olives offer a diverse range of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients and provide potent anti-oxidant, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory benefits to the body.
