Default Question about Olives, Capers, Etc.

I don't really find these in either the book or the cookbook. Of course, it could just be me, but where do they fit in?

I would think capers would be 'free' since they're practically non-existent, but olives would be my 3 teaspoons of fat for Wave 1? How much fat is in an olive, btw? Is one olive equal to one teaspoon of fat?

Anyway, has anyone seen a reference specifically to these items, and if so, what pages?

Thanks.

I can't recall where the references were, but I asked the Sonoma dietitian about olives last year. I vaguely remember being told that olives were allowed in small amounts as flavor enhancers without counting towards your fat. You wouldn't want to sit down and much them from a bowl, lol, but it's ok to add them to recipes. However, if you do want to sit and munch, 15 olives equals 1 1/2 tsp of fat.

Capers would be free

Default Thanks Suzanne

It's good to have an amount to work with. Olives are, indeed, our preferred snack... two or three with dinner or a glass of wine (once I get past wave 1)
