How Are Green and Black Olives Different?

Laura Dolson over at About.com explains the differences and briefly discusses olive processing in a recent post.

Olives, of course, are time-honored components of the Mediterranean diet.  I’ve had a few good crops in my backyard here in Arizona.

Is Your Diet Deficient in Micronutrients?

Laura Dolson at her Low Carb Diets Blog today reports on a recent study that compared micronutrient levels in three diets: Atkins, Zone, and LEARN.  Visit her post for the surprising and worrisome results of this study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

[In a nutshell, “micronutrients” are important vitamins and minerals present in small amounts in our food.]

Monica Reinagel has also reviewed the study.  I respect both of their opinions.
