Avocado Oil Has Many Qualities that Enhance General Health and Beauty
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

Mini-Tomatoes Cooked in Olive Oil Don’t waste over-ripe tomatoes. If you’re not cooking a stew or soup in which they would be useful, you can pan-roast them for concentrated flavour, adding olive oil and salt to preserve them in a refrigerated jar. These specially-prepared tomatoes are a fantastic condiment for vegetables, beef, in salads, and cottage cheese. ©M-J de Mesterton
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
A Rolled Omelette, Japanese Style, is Called Tamogayaki.
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
I placed a couple teaspoons of Ari’s Pepper Paste in a small zip-bag and snipped off one corner of it in order to apply the flavourful condiment to a layer of my rolled omelette.
Excerpt from the Article on Camphor Essential Oil, by Meenakshi Nagdeve in the Publication, OrganicFacts.net “The health benefits of camphor essential oil include its properties as a stimulant, antispasmodic, antiseptic, decongestant, anesthetic, sedative, and nervous pacifier. It also acts as an anti-neuralgic, anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, and an insecticide.” Ingest or apply (to skin) essential oils such as camphor, peppermint and tea-tree in tiny quantities. Use a pipette or eye-dropper to dispense it, and dilute with coconut oil to a tolerable strength.

Bon Ami, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, a bottle brush, Dettol Mould and Mildew Remover Spray, Comet Cleanser, Lysol, et cetera will be helpful for scrubbing the inside of your sink and its food-waste disposer (garbage disposal of “In-Sink-Erator” brand) interior. I have cut and removed the rubber flaps that covered the hole because they were prone to growing blackish mould on their undersides. I cover the aperture with a stainless-steel drain-basket instead when grinding food-waste. After scrubbing the hole with a bottle brush, that brush gets thoroughly cleaned and run through the dishwasher. ©M-J de Mesterton
Spinach, kale, rocket (
arugula or watercress), purple onion, celery and chard were finely diced and dressed with classic vinaigrette. Two boiled eggs at a deep yellow stage of cooking (not quite hard-boiled) were cut into sections and distributed on top of the chopped vegetables, which had already been tossed with vinaigrette. For visually-appealing boiled eggs, I use the method favoured by chef Jacques Pepin: with a push-pin, poke a hole in the wider end of a raw egg in its shell before lowering it into a pot of water. I simmer the egg for eight minutes, then bathe it in ice-water. The pinhole in the egg will prevent the buildup of sulfur inside the egg and thus keep the yolk from turning green, and resting the boiled egg in cold water makes it much easier to peel. This chopped power-greens salad with two eggs is very nutritious; it can of course be made without the red onion, and naturally welcomes additional ingredients such as bacon or shredded cheese.
