    5 Fatty Foods that Make You Skinny | Eat This, Not That

  • #2
    The five foods are: grass-fed beef, olive oil, coconut, dark chocolate, and almond butter.

    Let's see... In a food processor, pulse some dark chocolate and coconut. Heat some olive oil and almond butter in a pan. Add the dark chocolate and coconut. Add some curry powder and cayenne pepper. Stir until blended.

    Cook/grill/pan-fry a nice piece of grass-fed beef. Pour above sauce over it. Fatty, fat-blasty, meaty delicious goodness.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

        Only thing is... I'm not sure how well almond butter stands up to heat due to high ALA/O-6 content.

        Yes, you CAN cook nuts but it's probably not the best choice.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

          The first 4 I agree with.

          I'd pass on the almond butter. It's probably better than peanut butter, but it's still a flood of O6 and super easy to over-eat calorie-wise.

          Dark chocolate is a true superfood. IMO it's one of the healthiest things you can put in your body.

            I now only buy raw almond butter and use very little of it, only in recipes.

              Well I'm allergic to almonds, but I have had sunbutter (sunflower seeds) which isn't too bad. I'd say its a helluva lot better than peanut butter. I still rarely eat it.

              Mmm, steak? Yes, please. That's what's for dinner
              Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

                  I am so happy when I read people agreeing with me about this.

                  I have always been quite happy letting my girls have dark chocolate, but lately I took the decision to completely stop limiting them and let them self-regulate. I just can't think of anything bad in it, apart from a teeny bit of sugar and the caffeine if you are sensitive to it. I personally eat quite small quantities of it (but that's all I want) - I find it easy to self-limit because it's satisfying. I am quite caffeine-sensitive though and trying to lose weight, so I think for me small quantities make sense. But for my skinny, active children who are always moving about and burn through calories very fast, and who appear to sleep just fine even if they have just necked a great big chunk of it, I have actually come to decide that it's probably one of the best things they can eat!

                    I am going to do this - though unsure about cooking almond butter...

                      If cooking almond butter is a concern, maybe heat the other three ingredients, turn off the heat and then add the almond butter? This way it's not actually getting "cooked," just warmed from the surrounding foods.

                      I looked at those ingredients, and it reminded me of the tv show "Chopped," so I put something together in my head.

                      What about this? Make some beef jerky. In a double boiler, melt some dark chocolate. Dip the jerky in the chocolate, covering about 3/4 of each piece. Sprinkle on some of your favorite salt and let cool. In a separate container, combine olive oil, almond butter, and shredded coconut. Add spices if you like that coconut-spicy combo. When the chocolate has hardened on the jerky, dip the jerky into the coconut 'dip.'

                        I made this tonight for some rather over-cooked chicken thighs. I never noticed the dry chicken
