so while i'm a paleo guy with my main meals, i always take some fermented cod liver oil (omega 3, v-D) and high vitamin butter oil (k2). some people say grass-fed tallow would have k2 as well, and i guess that makes sense. so anyone who's been... (more)
It may not matter wrt K2, but one advantage of butter oil over pasteurized dairy products is that it contains the Wulzen factor. If you're young that may not matter, but as you age, anything that helps with stiffness is worth including in your... (more)
How much is okay to eat a day/week? I made some from a 1 lb of kerrygold butter a few days ago and have eaten almost the entire thing. It freaking tastes amazing and gives me the energy that was missing. I've been cooking with it plus eating it... (more)
I believe in a good mixture. In my kitchen you will find coconut oil, olive oil and ghee. Before starting the paleo diet some seven weeks ago I only used olive oil for cooking, frying ... and my total cholesterol was 255, HDL 82 and LDL 147.
What kind of fat do you use to cook your meats and to increase the fat intake in your diet. Personally, I have tried coconut oil and can not stand the taste of it (it is wonderful on the skin though). I have started to using Ghee and the label... (more)
I try to cook with coconut oil, have actually gone through a whole jar of it. However, when I see the price I want to treat it like liquid gold. I often find myself just using butter. I got to thinking though - what if I whipped up a batch of... (more)
Ive suddenly started to get folliculitis on my legs. Suddenly one day..boom.. 10 big folliculitis. Ive never had this before. Ive recently added ghee to my diet. Do you think that ghee can cause this? (Its grass fed ghee from iherb.) I mostly... (more)
I'm in a debate with a coworker about why cooking with butter (ghee) is better than vegetable oil. Now I know that coconut oil is good and olive oil is good for salad but can you guys shed light on why or if butter is better than most oils?
Sooo... I left my butter on the stove too long and burnt my ghee :o( The milk solids at the bottom of my pan were black, I filtered out the butter fat and it is a brownish-honey color. It tastes okay... can I eat it? It was three sticks of pasture... (more)
Coconut stuffs first > I just finished my first coconut oil. I very much liked it; but, I did NOT like guar gum listed in the ingredients. So, I hunted in my local co-op and other healthfood and health conscious stores. I found something that I... (more)
I've seen this product and just wanted feedback/thoughts on it.
I have read several of the threads on CLO and HVBO, but mostly they were just facts and opinions of whether or not it's good to take or not. I'm looking for real testimonies of people who take one of them or both of them, or people who have ever... (more)
So if we accept potato as a safe starch in the context of a healthy diet of a healthy person, is cutting up a fresh potato into fries and cooking them in ghee any different than spooning ghee onto a baked potato? In other words, isn't this a good... (more)
Been making homemade ghee a lot lately. So excited about this For those of you not familiar with ghee, it is essentially clarified butter (butter with the milk solids lactose & casein removed). The end result is a golden yellowy/orangish... (more)
Being strict paleo, I understand that I would have to eliminate butter... but my question is, is there any reason to eliminate butter? I have heard anecdotal evidence that it might raise insulin levels, but I haven't been able to find any studies... (more)
I love butter...to take it away from me, you'd have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands. One of my favorite lunches is a slab of cold rump roast with a thick layer of cold butter on it, with a little salt and pepper.
I have some pasteurized, pastured butter(Kerrygold!) and I want to make some ghee. I only have the salted ones right now and I'm wondering, pretty much every site I go to they say make ghee with unsalted butter. Do I really have to get unsalted to... (more)
Love dairy products and was previously drinking pints of milk per day until I realised that it was giving me terrible spots. Since going paleo my skin has cleared up massively which is great. I have started using butter with no discernable... (more)
I am a beginner in making ghee, in fact I just made ghee for the very first few minutes ago(!), and I used my friends method which I have a hard time to find on the internet and wanted to know if the method is all good. So here is how: you put the... (more)
I've started the Whole30 last week and I haven't drank any milk, yogurt or even butter. But I'm using ghee. In the beggining, I tought it was the eggs that were causing the nauseas, that "vomit feeling' (I'm sorry if you have just pictured it).... (more)
If you want to continue using ghee, you could try using cultured ghee. Many people who are sensitive to regular ghee find they can handle the cultured stuff.
Because of many food allergies and sensitivities I've found that I do best on a high fat diet, mainly consuming grassfed/finished fatty beef and a few servings of low carb green veggies daily. I've recently introduced small amounts of raw milk... (more)
Anyone buy non grass-fed ghee in bulk at Indian stores? Pros and Cons? Any brands we know for sure are or are NOT grass fed? I'm almost positive its not grassfed, but it might be a decent/necessary (affordable/accessible) option for some. (more)
