    1. Is olive oil a better choice than sesame oil? Great question. Thanks for asking. The Food As Ally approach answer depends on the who, what, where, why, when, and how of the person eating it.

      The short answer is it depends.

      Answering from a place of science gives the mental perspective and doesn’t consult your body’s intuition.

      Barring a medically-prescribed diet or allergy, for example, most people can safely eat any oil.

      Some of the many variables include: how much oil, quality of the specific oil batch vs. the oil’s known nutrition properties which are an average, how the oil is prepared, what time of day it is, if you need the type of energy you get from the oil you’re considering, how it went the last time you ate it, whether or not you are hungry for it, if there’s a nutrient in it that your body is calling for or doesn’t need at the time, what it will be eaten with, whether or not it was eaten too recently, and taste preference.

      It can easily come down to what you like better.

      It’s a lot to consider, which is why those who have learned to listen to what their body needs have an advantage.

      On a personal note, I have avocado, coconut, olive, and sesame oil in the kitchen. Most of the time I reach for avocado. Small quantities of sesame oil add an important flavor note to certain dishes that I love to make and eat.

      Did I answer your question?
