O-M-Ghee

Bite-Me---Oh-Em-Ghee

OMG… let’s talk about one of my favorite foods, ghee! You’re probably asking yourself, what the eff is ghee? (Either that or you’ve already hopped on the ghee bandwagon with me). Either way, let me break it down for you.

Ghee is essentially clarified butter. It’s composed of a short chain of fatty acids that is readily metabolized by the body. Ghee has been shown to reduce cholesterol, support brain health, treat constipation ( ya, I said it ), and help with digestion. It also promotes healthy bacteria in the intestine which can aid in weight loss (score!!). It’s packed with antioxidants and helps your body absorb vitamins and minerals from other foods. Oh ya, and also… it’s DELICIOUS!

You can use ghee in place of butter, olive oil, or basically anything that calls for oils or fats. You’ll find it in the dairy aisle of your local Whole Foods ( if you can’t find it, just ask)! Ghee is a stable fat and can withstand super high temperatures ( meaning you can avoid those nasty free radicals many other oils release when they are heated ). I love sautéing my kale in ghee, adding my favorite garlic pink himalayan salt, pairing it with a chicken breast, and voila… a super easy, super healthy dinner.

P.S. I’m bringing you one of my favorite 10 minute meal makeovers next week featuring the one and only ghee… ( hint hint: it’s PERFECT for Fall ) you won’t want to miss it!
