  • I searched for "saturated fats" google images, expecting to see photos of beef tallow, lard, butter, coconut oil, and all that yummy stuff. Instead, the results show... donuts, fried chicken, cheeseburgers, and pizza! Uh, since when is wheat a saturated fat?!

      Which is even more funny when you realize the oil the chicken and donuts are fried in is polyunsaturated (corn, soy, canola, or peanut). :/

      • It's because cw confuses them with trans fats.
        What to do: Eat real food, enjoy your food, get out into the sun as often as possible, move around, sleep well and early (like before 11 p.m.), have health as your main goal.

        You are probably going to fail if you: Restrict carbs or fat or calories, avoid fruit (because sugar derp), punish yourself with diet/exercise, have weight loss as your only goal,....

        • Every time someone has their doubts about how healthy eating butter and fatty meats are, I ask them if they would like to borrow my clothing (they can't, because the majority of my friends are chubsters who think their whole grains and overnight oatmeal jars made with fat free fruit 'flavored' Dannon yogurt are the epitome of healthy).

          One of my friends posted a picture of her "healthy lunch" sandwich which was a whole grain bread (toasted and buttered with margarine, no doubt), "pesto mayonnaise," cheddar cheese, spinach leaves and turkey (probably cured in soy). She was so proud of this meal, and I just wanted to gag. But the sad thing is, four years ago I probably would have considered that a healthy alternative to Ramen noodles. That was me. These moment are real reminders.

          • Yesterday I was at TJ shopping with a friend of mine who has recently switched from vegetarian to primal (via my influence, *pats my own back*). She asked me how I get enough fat and made a joke about eating butter. I responded that yes actually, sometimes I will eat a sliver of butter by itself if I'm a bit peckish. Obviously she was shocked so I grabbed a thing of Kerrygold, threw it in her basket, and told her that when you are eating REAL butter, it's creamy and sweet and lovey and that she'll understand once she switches.

            Two hours later I get the following text, "THAT BUTTER IS THE GOLDEN CRACK OF THE UNIVERSE!"

                • I too started licking the knife and the wrapper once I switched to Kerrygold butter.

                  • Reading these forums makes me sad that I am allergic to butter. I have to satiate myself on coconut oil and bacon grease when that's available. It rarely is since it gets eaten so quickly, hah. I've been meaning to try lard or tallow, but since there are no local livestock, I'll have to get some shipped in if I want grass fed or non-hydrogenated stuff.

                    Anyways, back on topic... I was in a rush to work one night and so I picked up a salad from a local large convenience store. It was a "garden salad" with mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, and lots of croutons which I discarded. On the label was a list of ingredients, and I quote, "Spring leaf, tomatoes, eggs. Contains: eggs."

                    No mention of the croutons that outmassed the eggs and tomatoes! No wonder CW is fine with bread, it must be literally nothing!

                      We can't get either tallow or fresh lard here, but I find pot-roasting fatty meat like brisket or pork shoulder provides plenty of fat to save for later use.

                      • Or you go buy a porc shoulder with the skin and fat still on, the more the merrier. Peel off the skin and most of the fat, chunk it up into crouton sized bits and slowly fry up the whole mess in a pot, as the fat melts spoon it out into a jar.

                        This will produce a goodly amount of rendered porc lard and if you keep the heat low and dont burn the remains, you will have the tastiest porc popcorn to nibble on.

                        I do this about once a month as money allows and I have a 1 liter jar of lard to cook with and it be tasty.

                        Also if you ever crave popcorn for real, making the popcorn in the lard is very yummy, you get less kernals left over than with butter for some reason and yeah different but delish.

                        • I'll definitely keep an eye out for pork shoulder, that's a great idea! Unfortunately all of the food (except local fish and crab) is shipped here so even finding such a shoulder might be difficult.

                          • Allergic to butter? Is it a casein or lactose allergy? Maybe try making butter from another animal's milk? Just a thought.

                            • It's a histamine response to a hormone from the mother cow. Clarified butter might be safe but since I get two weeks of discomfort for consuming dairy, I have not yet tried. I believe that it is safe for me to consume goat dairy, but I've only found goat cheese in town so far. The health food store in town is not very large... I'll look into getting some goats butter shipped in if I make an order at a place like US Wellness. Or maybe visit the Asian market.

                              CW gripe: most of the food shipped in to Juneau follows the SAD! I'm lucky that grass-fed is catching on, but other stuff is still fringe. Good luck getting marrowy bones, for example.

                              • Oh I just remembered something that happened like a year ago. Not really "conventional wisdom" as it was uhm. Ignorance seems like too harsh of a word, but yeah.

                                I was visiting my mom and bought some eggs to cook for everyone, for breakfast. My stepdad refused to eat them because they were brown instead of the white and he thought they may have been "dirty" :O
