Olives

Olives are often thought to be vegetables, but they are actually fruits! Olives come in both green and black varieties which are mostly similar; the difference lies in their ripeness with green being the least ripe and black is typically the most ripe. Olives and olive oil are both rich in healthy fats that can be attributed to better heart health. They're also full of antioxidants that help boost the immune system.
