As we are fat-burners, let’s begin with my favorite ways to get
Raw Grass-Fed Butter/Ghee: Check out my where to shop section to find out where you get such deliciousness. We do carry the ghee to convenience our clients. The Beauty of Butter.
Goat’s Milk Butter: Did you realize most of the world consumes goat’s milk butter? Many people with dairy allergies, can handle goat’s milk better too! Find out more, Featured Food: Goat’s Milk Butter.
Lard: I think you should being getting the hint that I like traditionally cooking oils used by those OLD farmers. Featured Food: Lard
Tallow: rendered beef fat, this is one of my favorite new fats, as I’ve finally found grass-fed. Featured Food: Tallow
Coconut Oil: Coconut is one of my favorite foods anyways and you can find it in an assortment of preparations: milk, concentrate, flakes, water, butter, flour. The oil has been used in studies with Alzheimer’s and is a great saturated fat that your brain loves. Crazy for Coconuts.
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil: pay out and get a quality olive oil with a harvest date, as there is a lot of fraud in the olive oil industry. Best for drizzling, since its smoke point is lower than the other oils. Love it on salads! I make I get sure I get olive oil each day for its inflammatory elements, like hydroxytyrosol (hint: I like it on my skin, especially my face). EVOO
Yolk: Most of the nutrients are in the yolk, look for pasture-raised to maximize benefits or raise your own. Eggs
You need protein and animal products are the best way to amino acids, plain and simple. What to buy? Grass-Fed and pasture-raised, check out the where to shop section to see where to get your hands on some. Adopt a farmer, join a CSA or find a local market. Links: Eggs, Goose and Duck, Sardines, Oysters, Salmon, Buffalo, Lamb, Beef, Turkey,Venison, Bone Marrow, Crab, Elk, Organs and Bacon.
Most of the time I stick to the produce section. Go hog wild with selection, but greens are really thermogenic (take longer to break down). These are just some of the options. Links for why to eat: spinach, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, mushrooms, endive, cabbage, cauliflower, zucchini, peppers, tomato, arugula, beets, carrots, swiss chard, artichokes, eggplant, sea vegetables, and radishes.
Definitely my favorite selection of fruits. Click on some of these links to find out more about some of the fruits: blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherries, strawberries, apricot, pumpkin, cranberries, grapefruit, grapes, apples, peaches, plums, and lemons.
I’m a baking freak! What I bake tastes good, yet is gluten-free and made with natural sweeteners. Here are a little more about these ingredients: Coconut flour, Almond flour, Honey and Maple, Cacao, Curds and Whey, and Almond Butter.
Some of My Favorite Things
Obsessed with fermenting and bone broths! Your digestive system will thank you for it. These other foods are great options as well, but make sure to love your nuts because they need care to reduce the phytic acid. Links: Fermented Foods, Fermented Cabbage, Lacto-Fermented Drinks, Beet Kvass, Nuts, Avocado, Kombucha, Bone Broths, Liver, and Pemmican.
Bored, I get this excuse all the time. This picture doesn’t even come close to eclipsing the number of spices out there. Plus you can play with different flavor profiles. Did you know you have six different taste on your tongue? My favorite profile is Hawaiian Sea Salt, Cinnamon and cayenne pepper. I put it on everything. Here are some of the ones that I have written about: cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, garlic, cumin and paprika.
