  • Fat-Rich Sides



    I am trying to give some advice on how to boost one's fat consumption, and was wondering if anyone knows of any sides that could help this purpose.


    Think something that could be served along with a steak and salad, for example.


    Any ideas?

      Bacon!


      Just kidding. Well, sort of I usually just slather some butter on my steak and do an oil based dressing for my salad (walnut oil or olive oil base), which lends a lot of fat to the meal. An herbed butter goes really nicely on a steak as well, just butter whipped with whatever herbs you'd like. Some people would be less averse to it that way, to start off I think.

          I usually go for the caramelized onion approach...sauteed in butter of course!


          Guacamole to throw on the steak maybe?


          I'm a big fan of toasted almonds in my salads.


          I've also got a recipe for a mustard/almond butter salad dressing that I should probably post. (sounds funky but it's superb). It's pretty much 100% good fat.

          I grok, therefore I am.

              Broccoli sautee'ed in olive oil and drizzled with brown butter, then sprinkled with mizithra cheese. OM NOM NOM.

              Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

                          A coconut oil cocktail? So many good ideas, I couldn't resist throwing a ridiculous one out there.

                            Marrow - if you can get it. It&#39;s something people used to eat quite a lot and that&#39;s only gone out of fashion recently. Queen Victoria had it on toast every day.


                            It&#39;s not only high in fat, but high in quite a few different minerals and vitamins. It was Stefansson and Andersen&#39;s main source of vitamin C when they ate a meat-only diet for a year.


                            Here&#39;s an example of how to serve beef and marrow:


                            http://www.hub-uk.com/foodpages36/1769.htm


                            It seems to be a variant of this one - where the marrow is in the sauce:

                            Haven&#39;t tried anything like that myself, but it sounds good.

                              Homemade mayonnaise is so simple it should be a crime (and, if CW has its way, probably will be).


                              Egg yolks, lemon juice and a touch of salt in the food processor. Turn it on and drizzle in olive oil until it&#39;s emulsified into fatty goodness.
