Although olives are classified as a fruit, you would need to eat around 30 olives for it to count as one portion.
Nutritionally there is no significant difference between black and green olives. The colour of olives is determined by the ripeness of the fruit when it is picked.
Stories regarding diet and nutrition can become a little dry if thought, insight and passion aren’t put into them. Fiona packs them in in droves and brings any topic she is commenting on to life.
It’s hard to find a nutritionist who cares as much about delicious food as I do but Fiona does. She understands that while I want my food to be healthy I also want it to be delicious so when we worked together on Skinny Weeks, Weekend Feasts she worked with me to make sure the recipes were healthy but stayed true to themselves. Beyond that, she’s great fun and super to work with.
I love working with Fiona because she has that rare ability to marry nutrition, PR and media all together. Her incredible knowledge of nutrition and her creativity makes her a dream for any PR to work with. With her journalism background she always meets deadlines and in my opinion exceeds the brief always.
