While grass-fed meat is definitely on the Ray Peat menu, a veggie burger recipe can fit in the diet too.
White fish is one of the recommended easily digestible proteins in the Ray Peat style diet, so this Sweet Paprika Fish Pot recipe will make cooking it super easy for you.
I keep hearing this a lot in the Ray Peat groups and forums – but what can I eat? So this year, I’m going to find, share and create more food suggestions and recipes to make life easier for myself and everyone else.
I’m not a fan of long-winded, elaborate recipes, I prefer quick and simple, but you can still pick a herb or a spice that can change the dish completely and give it a little pizzazz.
We now know that balanced sugar is actually fuel for all cells in the body – so long as it’s accompanied by adequate nutrients – I set out to make a milk fudge recipe that ticked all the boxes. (And left out nuts – see previous post.)
The Indian Burfi sweet treat was actually an inspiration for this; it seems to be made in many different ways – including nuts, but one version with milk powder started the creative neurons firing. (In some cases it’s also called Barfi however that’s not such a great word in English to associate with cooking and eating!)
These nut free bliss balls are great for those trying to limit their nut intake. Why would I be trying to do that I hear you say? Well read on…
By the time you read this I will be in the wilds of Iceland, just spellbound by my surroundings and marveling how great it is to be alive. I did manage to whip up this new Healthy Chocolate Caramel Candy recipe before I went though.
A simple recipe of White Chocolate Fruit Fudge and some great information on reducing tooth sensitivity.
So since I’ve been eating a little more along the Dr Ray Peat principles, read what that is here. I’ve found that drinking sweetened tea or coffee with honey and not rinsing between, has affected my teeth. A bit of sensitivity and lingering dull pain here and there.
Cut straight to the end – I’ve fixed it – however it started me looking into the remineralisation of teeth.
Full confession: this Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting was not my idea.
I first heard about it on Mummy Made it and because I am currently zoned in on all things icing and frosting at the moment to zshush up my creations, I thought I would explore further.
Google reveals that quite a few knew about this about 5 years ago and I’m late to the party! Better late than never right?
Do you know why finding a low pufa skincare is important? What even am I talking about?
(*Also note update at the end.)
What is a PUFA? – Why is it a problem? – How does it relate to my skin and ageing?
Ok, PUFAs are Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids and despite many a traditional dietitian still espousing that it’s the healthier oil – think nut oil, seed oil, grain oil – like sunflower, canola, rice bran – others like Biologist Dr Ray Peat say that due to its unstable nature – ie: easily breaks down in heat and light – it actually may be toxic and inflammatory and cause a whole host of issues like this:-
Every time I was in my local health store, I would look at the packets of healthy chocolate chips longingly, thinking of all the yummy treats to which I could add them – like my ice cream, brownies, slices, even biscuits.
But at $24 a pop for a little packet, that seemed a little indulgent to me – I want healthy ingredients, but that’s a bit ridiculous. And the non-healthy ones were not at option.
Ok, so I’ve mentioned a few times now that I am moving away from a keto diet.
The reason is that it stopped working for me. The weight started to pile back on and I developed serious health issues.
