Lindsay Olives Since 1916

With springtime just around the corner, we know a lot of people have health on their minds.  So beginning March 1 Lindsay Olives will be launching 30 Tips for 30 Days to a Healthier You. They will be sharing one healthy tip each day for the entire month of March on their Facebook page to inspire people to become their best selves.  Lindsay will be giving away a $500 gift card to one Facebook fan if they like them between March 1-31.  To be entered into the giveaway, you just need to post a health tip and tell them The Frugal Diva sent you.

The Frugal Diva loves the huge punch of flavor that comes in the little olive.  Black, green, big, little, not pitted and pitted, they add a spark to pastas, salads, and spreads.  This is a fantastic recipe for a hearty protein packed party dip. Instead of tortilla chips, I  use whole wheat pita bread cut into wedges. Left overs make great sandwich fillers.
