CINDYCHARLENE, From everything I have been reading now about the Mediterranean Diet, yes olives are good for us. So if you cannot have olive oil it would be good to eat olives plus walnuts. Olives are suppose to be a very healthy food.

Having no gall bladder and prone to bile duct stones, oils gives me a stomach ache. Would it be just as helpul if I ate olives plus walnuts?

I thought we should be eating beans or legumes daily and not so much fish or poultry.

I am also allergic to fish and people look at me when I say that so I am glad I am not the only one who is allergic to fish. I get extremely sick--even deathly sick if I eat fish. Of course, I do not. So should I be eating more olives?

I do eat some olives since I am allergic to fish but the amount is 20 to reap any benefits. I love whole grain bread with into a dip with olive oil and herbs. I always cook veggies with olive oil but I read that the benefits diminish with heat. I sometimes add the oil cold to salad or pasta. I can't say I get the 3 TBS since it is a lot of calories. I did just buy some cold pressed at buy one get one free. emoticon
