  3. Olive oil

    Olive oil tastes better than other oils.
  4. If you are thinking of buying Panettone.

    In 1395 a decree allowed all Milan bakeries to bake the so-called Pan del Ton (meaning a valuable bread or Luxury Bread) for Christmas: a richer white loaf that even the poor could have on that special holiday. Although the true secret to great Panettone is the sourdough starter with good natural ingredients, to use more butter than sugar delivers a better eating experience. The end result is rich and moist and not so dry and flaky.
  5. Perfect scrambled eggs

    Tell me which one you you think is better?

  7. Easy snacks

    I cut cucumbers into 4 long strips and put lemon, salt, and red pepper. Easy and healthy.
  8. Do check the list of ingredients, in a decent Panettone ( for example: Wheat Flour, Raisins, Water, Butter, Sugar, Candied Orange Peels,etc) butter should always come before sugar.

  11. Olive oil

    According to the above image, sunflower oil is the worst oil for using in cooking.
  12. Olive oil

    Keep this formula in mind: 4×omega6<= 1×omega3 It means that the amount of omega3 in the body should not be less than 4×the amount of omega6. Otherwise it will cause disease.

  14. Easy snacks

    Avocado on toast is nice and simple. I definitely have to add some black pepper or chilli flakes. The pic below also has pomegranate and feta cheese but you can add what you like. It's delicious and an easy snack.
  15. Olive oil

    Why is too much omega-6 relative to omega-3 bad? It has been proposed that a balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fats that is close to the balance of fats in the Paleolithic (caveman) diets, which humans ate for many thousands of years, is a better fit for our genetic makeup than the more recent agricultural diets and modern fast-food diets [5]. Consumption of diets high in omega-6 fatty acids relative to omega-3 fatty acids alters the body’s harmony and promotes inflammation, which is considered a root cause or major factor in many chronic diseases afflicting society today.

    The Consumption of Omega-6 Versus Omega-3 Fatty Acids Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are both considered essential for the body, which means that they must be consumed via the diet. Throughout the course of history, both of these fatty acids were consumed in relatively similar quantities with a ratio of 1:1 (reviewed in [1-4]). In fact, it has been suggested that the Paleolithic (caveman) diet, which was consumed during the period when our genetic patterns were established, was low in total fat but high in polyunsaturated fat, including alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), EPA, and DHA. In more recent times in many populations around the world, the introduction of agriculture has led to diets built around the consumption of grains; this dietary shift has increased the consumption of omega-6 fatty acids. The omega-6 consumption has been further increased and the omega-3 consumption further decreased in the past century as a result of the industrial revolution, the emergence of agribusiness with processed foods, grain-fattened livestock, and hydrogenation of vegetable fats (reviewed in [4]).

  24. Olive oil

    Olive oil is a liquid fat obtained from olives (the fruit of Olea europaea; family Oleaceae), a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin. The oil is produced by pressing whole olives. It is commonly used in cooking, whether for frying or as a salad dressing.
