BTD Forums  /  Nonnie Clubhouse  /  Ghee or butter - are they a good fat or not?
Posted by: Goldie, Thursday, June 14, 2012, 9:05am
I have issues adding good fat / oil to my food, unless I get it in mayo / avoid..

should olive oil be heated or not?

so I now wonder about adding more ghee, or butter,

I don't like the taste of ghee as much,.. is there a way to make it taste any better? tastes rancid to me.

Would fat in 2 eggs instead of 1(recommended by Swami) count as fat?

Refined olive oil can be heated.

You can use ghee or butter.

Try putting 4 cloves when you are making your ghee, it gives very nice taste.

I also put some powdered ginger and turmeric, and ghee tastes great.

I don't think eggs would count as fat, but why not stick to recommended one egg.

ghee has no sodium compared to butter so salting the foods you cook in ghee will help

For O type, the difference between ghee and butter is important: butter creates problems with the body system, whereas ghee is at least neutral.

Portion Size: 1 tablespoon
Frequency: 6 servings weekly.

.. so if I did 1 tea spoon Diamond olive oil with my meat..  add in 1egg a day, and then all else would be enough..

I will try the cloves.. interesting flavor, yes..  

Thanks..

For cold-stone-pressed EVOO, you'd negate the benefits of the cold processing by heating it.  Still, I see it used often to fry garlic & onions on low or medium heat, and I do it often.  For higher heat I prefer ghee or a mixture of EVOO & ghee.

I prefer the taste of butter over ghee.  But adding salt, as Mother suggests, does help.
