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)
Hi everyone! I've gotten almost all of my paleo question answers from reading old post on this site. There are definitely some bright people on here! :) Anyways, there one question I can't seem to find the answer to anywhere! Whats the correct... (more)
Hello, good question, I cool it down at room temperature for at least 24 hours, there's no rush and yes I reuse the cheesecloths. You can find more info from the ghee experts in an Indian website.
I've decided to do an elimination diet for a couple months, so no processed sugar, no grains, no cheese, no ice cream cheats, going to get all my calcium from bones (canned fish/brittle broth bones) While i'm at it is there anything... (more)
Ok really simply, i have autoimmune issues that I found out about recently.. got myself tested for upgraded coffee beans, and i dont have any allergies to it (woot!), but butter does mess me up because of the casein and lactose.. pretty sure... (more)
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)
I woke up a few days ago with a sudden of red rash on my face, under my nose, side nose and chin especially, not to bad though.. but it really looks like keratosis pilaris along with some pimples. I seemed after cooking my foods in ghee the... (more)
I'm not talking about restaurants or processed freezer meats, I mean just plain cuts of meat lightly coated with coconut flour then fried(not deep fried though)in coconut oil or ghee in a wide saucepan(it's my favourite way to eat liver). Is it... (more)
It is just as paleo as any of the other paleo things we modern humans eat. If you want to be a stickler, then only food you hunted and gathered is paleo, and then you most likely ate it raw, or possibly roasted over an open fire.
I tried to make ghee out of kerrygold butter and raw grass-fed butter yesterday. I did them both again today some may have burned. I put them in the refrigerater and both are very white and taste like burnt popcorn in my coffee. Is the white... (more)
Mine is always pale yellow/cream When making ghee, keep an eye on it, and the minute it stops boiling and the temperature starts to rise, turn it off. Use a sugar thermometer if you have one.
I use an organic ghee from grass-fed cows. The ghee is cooked at very low temperatures. I came across high vitamin butter oil at WAPF, but can't find any informational on the actual nutritional value of high vitamin butter oil. My undestanding is... (more)
I am 26 days into my second Whole 30 and loving life! But while I love coconut in nearly any form, I am finding that I really don't enjoy the sweetness in some savory recipes-- particularly eggs. Made NomNomPaleo's prosciutto-wrapped frittata... (more)
Need I include ghee in my diet? Will I get enough vitamin K without ghee? Do leafy greens and vegetables provide adequate vitamin K? I know this vitamin has been getting a lot of attention recently in the treatment of bone related diseases like... (more)
Many years ago I tried a ghee I bought at a store and hated it. Just recently, I tried again, and I can't stand the taste. Is it just because it's storebought? Is homemade any better? Is it an acquired taste? Is everyone lying about loving it? Is... (more)
I know that there are differences in the cooking properties of ghee and butter, but is one better than the other nutrition/healthwise? I'm a huge fan of Kerrygold and use it quite often. I do see a lot of paleo people talking about ghee, and... (more)
Has anyone tried ghee for skin treatment? Mostly for acne healing? A few months back my doctor suggested using ghee eye drops for my self induced, obssessive rubbing session, irritated eyes. It worked like a charm! So, have you used it for... (more)
I have dogs at home that sleep in bed with me. It could be hard to try, get really messy and I bet I'd go through a lot of ghee. The dogs, on the other hand, would be happy.
I read a thread here from last year and the general consensus was not to refrigerate it. I can certainly see why: I just took the jar out of the fridge and it was rock solid: it took significant knife effort to chop some out. The previous post... (more)
Does ghee from "organic sweet cream butter from pastured cows on a small, certified organic family farm" offer the same awesome health benefits as Kerrygold pastured butter? The brand is: www.PurityFarms.com I guess my question is: is the... (more)
Have just run out of Khanum pure butter ghee without ethyl butyrate which cost 5.45 GBP for 500g tin. That is quite expensive and I can buy the ghee with ethyl butyrate (same brand, same size for 4.49 GBP). Is ethyl butyrate really bad news ? I've... (more)
Hi. I'm looking for an unsalted grass-fed butter. And I don't seem to be able to find it. So I need the assistance of some french and german paleo-eaters!! One butter I've come across with is the Vrai Organic Unsalted Butter... (more)
According to the Vrai website, their dairy comes from cows fed primarily on meadows. Sounds like it's mostly pastured, but they aren't very clear as to whether it's 100% grass fed or not.
I made some ghee three weeks ago, used regularly, stored in the fridge. Recently I noted it strongly smells like aged cheese, which it did not when I made it. Is that a problem? I do not mind the smell.
smen is a delicacy in some countries ;) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smen it's essentially ghee left alone to age. the smell is normal, don't worry.
