I just want y'all to outline the pros, cons, and nutritional differences between butter and heavy cream. Also - creative ways to incorporate these into your diet (e.g. "bulletproof coffee") Also - good suggestions on where to get... (more)
Is there a big nutritional difference between heavy cream and butter? Both are grassfed, but I tend to enjoy cream in my coffee more than butter, and am not looking to lose weight. However, if there is some sort of difference between the two... (more)
I mash up some frozen bananas to make banana soft serve (sometimes with coconut flakes, some nuts, or some cocoa powder, it's like a blizzard from DQ!) and then top it with some coconut cream, yummmm!
Coconut cream has more coconut solids in it. It's delicious to eat on its own, but not right for cooking. It melts, but it will make everything taste much more like coconuts than oil will, and it will probably mess with the texture of whatever you... (more)
Has anyone that uses cream, like in coffee, found that they get depressed after eating it for a few day? I've been using it for a bout a week and noticed as the days go on I'm getting more and more depressed it seems. So I'm cutting that once I... (more)
I made some recent purchases from a coop in Pennsylvania and one of the items that I got was listed as "Cream (medium), 1 qt in glass" I had been a little disappointed when I placed the order as they did not list heavy cream and I assumed that... (more)
Coffee discovery! I am trying to drink only black coffee, which ive come to appreciate, but I miss the feel, flavor, and fullness of added cream or coconut milk. Have any of you ever tried cold brewed coffee? It's character is very different... (more)
I know it's a natural byproduct of wine making, but wasn't sure if it qualifies for a paleo diet. I realize our ancestors most likely didn't have it in their pantry, but is it one of those things that is acceptable because it doesn't actually do... (more)
I know a good amount of paleo people accept white rice as a safe starch because it is purely that, a starch. What about cream of rice? I got it from the store and the only ingredient is granulated rice, so just from that it seems like it is fine.... (more)
Im guessing it is the coconut flesh (the yellow/cream coloured stuff) and the oil is the clear white stuff. Ive been throwing the clear white stuff away in the past and just eating/cooking with the yellow, more prominent stuff in the block. Pic... (more)
You guessed right, happens to my jars of coconut butter. But why would you throw the coconut oil away? Either warm up the contents of the bag and stir it in or take the fat out and cook with it...
So to give you some background I've been pretty strictly Paleo (aside from grass-fed meat, but I have bought a bit of wild fish!) for the last 2-3 weeks and want to continue this way as much as possible. My aim is to be healthier but mainly to... (more)
[26/m] I've been eating a very steady diet the past month. Mostly "Perfect Health Diet" style meals of grass-fed steak, fish, basamati rice, yams, raw milk, pasture butter, coconut oil, full-fat Fage, then tons of veggies and fruit. No deviation... (more)
Did you add sprinkles? if you didn't that's your problem right there...also, there sounded like there was a severe lack of hot fudge? ...am I the only one that likes the add ons to ice cream more then the ice cream itself...I feel like I'm being... (more)
For those who are lactose intolerant it is recommended to make yogurt for 24 hours to make sure the bacteria have consumed all the lactose. This is when making yogurt from milk. I would like to make my yogurt from cream. What is the minimum... (more)
So I'm curious about the pros and cons of one over the other. Usually I make americanos with HWC but occasionally with coconut. I like both. Is one better for health? How about for weight loss?
I have, for years, an insatiable craving for heavy sweet cream. Before menopause, I would indulge in it a day before my period. I'd drink 8 or 16 ozs. of it as soon as I'd buy it. I'd drink it while still in the car. I couldn't possibly wait... (more)
For the first time in ages, I went today without a binge (knock on wood, there is still time before tomorrow). Unfortunately, I can binge on ANYTHING and could binge on 3/4 of whole chicken, bag of vegetables, all downed in a stick of butter and... (more)
Do you drink cream? Saute your meals with heaps of butter? Eat tons of starch? Two pounds of meat a day? Maintaining my weight is starting to become a hassle. How do you guys do it?
I eat plants and animals until i'm full 1-2x/day.
Okay, so this may seem like a no-brainer, but if ice cream (assume high quality content: organic, grassfed dairy and no crappy fillers like guar gum) has such all-star ingredients -----like heavy cream and egg yolk!---why is it considered bad for... (more)
Here is the Link- http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/product.php?p=so_delicious_nsa_vanilla_bean The ingredients are in the menu on the right hand side. This isn't spam its just a link to the product I have a severe crush on as a substitute... (more)
I've been eating and living the Paleo lifestyle for a few years now, but I'm just now getting into looking into different recipes... I've noticed that a few desserts call for coconut cream and/or butter. I use coconut oil and milk quite... (more)
I love a little heavy cream in my coffee, but recently it seems I just can't find the good stuff anywhere. I used to get it at a farmers' market, or the Ronnybrook cream at the local organics store. Now my farmer's no longer there, and the store... (more)
I came on here to make a new question about butter and cream (actually "dairy" in general). So I did a search first like a usually do before posting a question. This led me to the below 2 threads by Travis Culp and Todd, which I read through both... (more)
I did, up until this evening. Here's a 1-minute hack for awesome ice-cream: Dump a handful or two of frozen mixed berries in the food processor. Cover with cream, approximately the same amount by volume as berries. Whiz briefly until... (more)
I hadn't had dairy in close to 10 months and finally binged on close to 400 grams of sour cream daily for three days, and I feel great. No digestive issues, and no obvious symptoms that I could pick up. But like the saying goes 'tolerated is not... (more)
