Just wondering how you make your clarified butter and whether low temps or high are better? I start with raw unpasteurised cultured butter, presumably to keep all the goodness intact i want to heat it as little as possible when clarifying it... (more)
Lately when I cook steaks, I've been doing a mix of organic olive oil + grass-fed butter ghee + a little bit of water. I find this allows me to cook at a semi-higher temp without burning the meat or the olive oil. The thicker the steak or... (more)
Pre season the meat a few hours ahead with salt, put it closely under a very hot broiler and cook about a total of 7 minutes. I don't add any oils or butter. Hamburgers usually in a pan with some coconut oil to prevent sticking to pan.

My Vitamin D levels are 40 ng/mL, and I'm trying to bring them to 50 because my grandmother and mother have osteoporosis. My mother has Vitamin D levels similarly and had to supplement with 1500-2500 IU/day to bring them to 50-60. Below 50 ng/ML... (more)
