Olives – The Healthy Alternative To Potato Chips!

Have you ever relaxed in an easy chair watching a TV show while eating from a large bag of potato chips? I’ll bet you have! Most of us have at one time or another. It’s OK occasionally, but if you eat fatty things too often… well, I guess I don’t really need to spell it out for you.

In Spain they have a wonderful tradition in their bars. When you order a drink you get a small plate of tapas placed in front of you. Tapas can be any kind of tasty tidbit. But very often it will be olives, maybe a dozen or so at a time.

It’s a great habit to get into, relaxing with a glass of something pleasant and enjoying some fresh olives. It’s a tradition that very country should adopt. So, next time you sit down to watch TV, reach for the olives and not the chips – you’ll be glad you did!
