Best sources of good fats?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 02, 2011 at 2:10 PM

Several threads have suggested upping fat intake to help reduce cravings, and to feel more satisfied. What are the best sources of good fats when having a hankering for more food (especially non-paleo food)?

Greek yogurt is my staple.

yeah...griebenschmaltz (or close to that) is the pork fat kind. All this German fatty talk is making me hungry for a crispy roasted joint (schweinhaxe?) and sausages of all kinds but especially weisswurst. It's that time of year again.

In Ravensburg it was bacon grease but they could be an outlier...too close to Switzerland maybe...

Eric, do you eat it straight? I am looking for ways to eat fat rather than carbs when I feel "I need something", but don't have the variety of options most folks seem to have.

What exactly is marrow? I saw that it's extremely calorie-dense, love that.

Eat some more bacon. Or do what they do in Germany and use bacon fat (schmaltz) as a topping, like butter.

Butter your cheese, like they do in France. Since whole milk cheese is already 50% fat, it's like piling on.

Duck fat and goose fat are good too, and relatively high in monounsaturated fats, so possibly healthier than fully saturated fats like butter.

If like us you go in for a little dairy here n there then, cheese, butter's, real greek yoghurt, but also coconut oil is good. But of course perhaps the best option is to go for fattier cuts of meat for your main meals. A family favourite in our house is Belly Pork cooked till the fat is crispy...mmmmmm!

Marrow is my bacon :) I am trying to discover new ways of using marrow. Usually i just roast one or two bones and include marrow on top of steaks, liver etc. Sometimes with mushrooms. Used even once with salmon, not bad btw :)

I find butter to be satiating. 1 or 2 tbsp.
