    I bought a jar of green olives on Sunday. I used to hate them but figured they'll add flavour to my salads and I think I'm getting addicted lol. xx

    I'm a Quark newbie too and I love it.

    As for olives, I forced myself to eat them because they look sophisticated. Now I'm addicted.

    BTW, I have never eaten so many eggs as I do now....I love them.

    Pasta n Sauce - not the sort of thing I'd normally buy. But I find them handy for making a quick meal on Green/Extra Easy. I make them up with vegetables in them and I take them to work and heat them up for my lunch. I sometimes put my HexA of cheese on top. Nice.

    Total 0% Greek yogurt. Have heard that the larger the olive the milder the flavour so it might be worth looking out for the larger olives for people that are new to them
