I love green olives and have been having a bit of a hankering for them, but my mom doesn't think that they are good for me to eat while I am pregnant because of the salt in them...I dunno if that is true or not...But when I do eat a couple I drink loads of water to dilute the salt. Do you think it is okay to eat them?
