Heavy Cream Questions
I loved that I used to be able to walk in to a Starbucks, order my coffee, and request that they put heavy cream into it for me. A few months ago, I noticed they were using a different heavy cream container. It used to be light blue, the new... (more)
I have a small bottle that I fill with coconut milk when I'm going to an espresso place. Tastes just as good in my coffee as cream does (and I'm off dairy anyway).
I would be getting 1600 calories, 175 fat, 122.5 saturated fat, 0 carbs, 0 sugars, 0 protein I figured this would be ALMOST be all I needed for my Low Carb High Fat Diet, maybe with the addition of a couple of eggs or a little bit of meat... (more)
I have seen quite a few Paleohacks members mentioning they have developed GERD when approaching the 1 year mark on Paleo. It seems to be between 7 and 11 months usually. Since the same is now occurring to me (at 9~10 months), i am becoming... (more)
I have cut back my coffee in take gradually so eventually it will become a treat, but at this point it's about twice/week. These days I usually have it with heavy cream. Though we all know this is the better option, the calorie range is... (more)
I drink two tablespoons of heavy cream in my two coffees every morning. I'm still dropping about two pounds a week. Man, that's a lot of "twos" http://www.jbprimal.com

Hey guys, I was wondering if I could have some advice on eating heavy cream (the carton says at least 40% fat) and losing weight. I know I should be eating minimal nuts and fruit but just wondering what rules apply for heavy cream. I've recently... (more)
My 2 year old loves his whole milk (organic, super pasteurized) and I have been sneaking in coconut milk but he doesn't like it. We do not have access to raw milk (on an island). Should I switch him to full fat cream? He is a pretty good eater,... (more)
I am starting to get the hang of this lifestyle I think. I find I am eating two large meals (one morning one evening) and one snack in the afternoon. I love that I am not "STARVING" all the time anymore, and I'm eating to nourish my body. This... (more)
Which do you think is better (healthier) for me in your morning coffee or tea if you like a creamy cup? Please note I do not like coconut milk or eggs in my coffee. And do you know if they make heavy cream from goats?
Cream is cream and milk is milk. Given how much you're actually going to add, the difference in your health between the two is miniscule. Use the one that makes the tastier coffee.
So, I got a quart of heavy cream a few weeks ago, and the stuff turned fast. Way faster than what I'm used to. Setting aside the argument over whether I should be eating it at all, what do you all think I can use it for? Is sour cream just cream... (more)
If it is pasteurized and has gone really sour (i.e. it's chunky), then it has probably putrefied and you just need to toss it. If it was raw cream (i.e. unpasteurized), it can get sour and still be edible for as long as a week or two. The sour... (more)
I usually drink at least a half-pint or more a day. My favorite brand is Evan's Farmhouse from upstate. The cream comes from grassfed Jersey cows, so it's almost a pale yellow color, and very rich and sweet. There's no nutritional info on the... (more)
This may not need it's own question but I am pretty excited that after 37 years I have discovered heavy cream. I've had a milk allergy since I was born (both mucus producing and stomach issues). I was pretty much fine with skim milk (excess... (more)
OK I gotta know - some people say that FTW stands for "For The Win!" while some say it means "F--- The World!" personally I prefer the former - but which one is it???
Lately, I've been drinking a latte made with grass-fed heavy cream, espresso, and cinnamon, on an almost daily basis (about a large cups worth). Tastes good, and keeps morning hunger pangs away until I'm settled in at work. Any reason I should cut... (more)
Surprisingly, Walmart's Great Value heavy cream is noticeably thicker and creamier than just about anything else I can find out there. I easily go through a quart in about 5 days, and drinking it with a square of super dark chocolate is like a... (more)
I've noticed that good quality butters like Kerrygold or cultured butter) and clarified butter don't bother me; but yogurt (even goat yogurt), regular cheese, and even heavy cream upset my stomach and give me gas problems. I thought that butter... (more)
So I haven't been able to find whipping cream or heavy cream; all I find is "cream". Fresh pasteurised cream. ingredients: Pasteurised cream (40% milk fat). Where does this fit into the American-styled heavy cream?
Has anyone ever made butter at home from heavy cream? I know you can whip heavy cream into butter with either a hand mixer or a blender like the Vitamix. But have you ever done it sorta like Mark Sisson style, where you press the buttermilk out of... (more)
I just drank a pint of heavy whipping cream and will continue to do so every day this week and report back with my results. Apparently a pint has 1600 calories in it. For that many calories, I expected it to be a lot thicker. I'm sure it will... (more)
Drinking heavy cream in tea/coffee is easy enough and I understand some people add HC to eggs and make shakes of sorts. Does anyone have any other recommendations? I have trouble drinking it plain and I'm veering away from even decaf coffees and... (more)
I enjoy heavy cream but I cannot find what I consider reliable information about it. (I do not consider anything published by the government or the milk industry as "reliable.") 1) Here in the U.S., in my part of the country, I can only get cream... (more)
I swear I bought some heavy cream at Trader Joe's that was totally free of additives. My most recent purchase there has carrageenan. Not sure how awful the stuff is (if at all) but I'd rather have 100% cream. Anyone know of any "clean" brands?... (more)
