The Avocado’s natural monounsaturated fat is known for its power to lower blood-pressure. This beneficial lipid is pressed from the luscious green fruit to make avocado oil.
Avocado oil helps to alleviate arthritis.
Psoriasis is treated successfully in France with avocado oil; it is especially effective when incorporated into vitamin B-12 skin-cream.
Avocado oil’s high monounsaturated oleic acid content helps to improve general heart-health and lower blood-cholesterol.
Avocado oil, with its high smoke-point, is ideal for cooking. I like to cook popcorn in it instead of coconut oil. Avocado oil is used in vinaigrette for salads. When ingested, this beneficial oil promotes the absorption of antioxidants in food. Oil of avocado has such a mild taste and scent that it is extremely versatile; it can be used as a healing emollient on the skin. ©M-J de Mesterton 2019

From the Publication, “STUDY FINDS”:
Above: grape-sized tomatoes are roasted in an oiled cast-iron pan, first on the stove and then for a few minutes in the oven under a broiling-flame. This process allows tomatoes to become concentrated in flavour, while making them easier to eat when incorporated into an egg dish. ~ Copyright 2018 ©M-J de Mesterton
My rolled omelet has a layer of farmer cheese, a layer of pan-roasted cherry tomatoes, and a third one of Ari’s Pepper Paste, from the Armenian market. It’s a breakfast dish with lots of Vitamin C and protein. ©M-J de Mesterton 2019
