You either love 'em or you hate 'em. Either way, olives are a good keto-friendly snack in moderation. A serving of 10 medium olives contains 1.2 g of net carbs. Olives are a good source of oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid that helps reduce the risk of heart disease.

Green and black olives are nearly identical in terms of nutrition (green olives turn black after they ripen!), but green varieties are a bit higher in sodium, as manufacturers cure them in a salty brine.

Olives make a classy addition to your dirty martini, and stuffed olives dress up any cheese platter.
