Week Two, Day One Challenge
Fats for High Heat
Today’s challenge is using traditional fats in our cooking.
This was one of the first “new” ideas that really challenged me when I was learning about a traditional foods diet.
How could FAT be good for you?!
However, I was quickly swayed.
Not by research.
(although there is quite a bit out there)
Not by cost.
(because GMO canola/corn/soy oil will always be cheaper)
But the taste.
Ahh… the taste.
THAT sold me.
Some of my favorite ways to use FAT:
Popcorn popped in coconut oil.
Eggs simmered cooked in butter.
Potatoes fried in duck fat.
Oh, and the quintessential:
Homemade bread with enough butter on top to sink your teeth into.
