Olive Cilantro Boule

Adding in 1/2 cup of Olive and 1/2 cup of Cilantro in the sourdough boule today.

Went through the nutrition benefits of olive - one cup serving of black olives has 142 calories, about 1 g protein, 8 g carbohydrate, 4g of fiber and about 13 g fat. The fat in black olives comes primarily from monounsaturated fat sources. Monounsaturated fats are recommended for consumption in moderation to help reduce risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.

Olives are a  good source of iron, vitamin E and copper. Iron functions in the blood to help carry oxygen. Without adequate iron levels, you may become anemic, and symptoms include fatigue after normally easy activity. Vitamin E helps protect the hear, and many patients with cardiac history are prescribed this vitamin by their physicians. Copper has many functions in the body, including growth and development, utilization of iron, hair and skin growth and maintenance, and energy production.
