Olives (Including Green Ripe Olives)

Olives come in many different forms. My very favorite are natural, tree-ripened olives. They taste amazing and they are the most nutritious and easiest to digest.

Where to buy good olives

We love these natural tree-ripened olives from Azure Standard.

Lindsay Naturals also carries tree-ripened olives.

Are olives a healthy food?

It depends. Tree ripened olives packed in water (not oil or vinegar) are the healthiest olives. The fat in them is good for the digestive system.

Other varieties of olives that contain oil or vinegar are actually damaging to your health.
