Nutritional values

This snack is as healthy as it could be. Whether you eat them with a little bit of wine or by themselves, the wonderfully spicy fruits provide plenty of valuable, unsaturated fatty acids that benefit the heart and circulation, while fennel and chili help with digestion.

If you pay particular attention to calories, you can still treat yourself to green olives, because they contain much less fat than the black variety.
