Enjoying five olives will only set you back 26 calories. Olives are tasty and easy to pack in lunches as a snack or salad topping. Rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, olives are known to help reduce bad LDL cholesterol and can even support bone health. Olives contain iron, copper, vitamin E, and calcium. They can also contain sodium as they’re often packaged in saltwater or brine, so if you need to watch your salt content, be sure to monitor the number of olives you eat.
