How to distinguish quality olive oil from counterfeit?

To date, olive oil has become widespread among Russian consumers as one of the most useful vegetable oils. It is the best source of monounsaturated fatty acids among all vegetable oils, which should make up 60% of all consumed fats. However, only a quality product is really useful.

Fasting involves complete or partial abstinence from animal products, and for many people such abstinence is a rather difficult test.

However, it is precisely due to various restrictions in food and in earthly pleasures that each person cultivates a spirit in himself, which should govern the human body, and not vice versa.

In the Christian tradition, there are several types of fasts – multi-day, one-day, and those that a person imposes on himself in preparation for holy communion. Continue reading
