Are olive leaves and whole green olives healthier than olive oil?

Olive leaves are lower in calories!!

Can one just confirm an organic olive farm for the olive leaves
Oleopeurin if you can tolerate the taste

FWIW, on the ZOE podcast, I learned that olive oil is ok at high heat for most home cooks. They said the issue is the ultra high heat you might produce in a restaurant setting. I can’t speak to its accuracy but they seemed to know what they were talking about. As a result, I use EVOO with anything unless it’s on the grill.


Oleuropein is the polyphenol responsible for the bitter taste of the good EVOO.

That’s why I love Greek food, dolmades !
