Cheeses Protein vs Fat

 

There is no doubt that cheese is a wonderful food in the Ray Peat line up. When weight loss is a consideration however, the protein vs fat equation comes into play in all the cheeses you are eating.

This post was inspired by two of the members of our private Facebook group who were discussing cottage cheese and the fact that it was awful and tasteless. Another issue was gut irritation.

High Protein Ice Cream

High protein ice-cream for breakfast?

You bet! That’s what I’ll be eating in the heat of summer with loads of fruit.

In our Facebook Private Group, we were discussing making sure we get enough protein to keep the liver functioning properly. One member complained that she struggles to get it all in because she doesn’t always feel like it. So I asked the question:

“If it was ice cream with fruit & chocolate on top would you feel like it then?”

Skim Milk is good for you. Do you believe me?

I’ve seen it a couple of times now on social media where health bloggers and even a famous, healthy living personality have dissed skim milk, labelling it as highly processed, devoid of nutrients, not real food blah, blah, blah. And they took pride in saying they don’t drink milk anymore anyway!

Chewy Milk Fudge Recipe – Nut Free

ray peat, milk, metabolic, healthy treat,

We now know that balanced sugar is actually fuel for all cells in the body, and is good for you so long as it’s accompanied by adequate nutrients. I set out to make a milk fudge recipe that ticked all the boxes for taste and nutrition, and left out nuts – see previous post as to why this is important.)

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!)

Cheese Chips

More people have asked me about savoury snack ideas as I do make a lot of sweet stuff – my personal preference. I seem to enjoy the sweeter stuff more in terms of feeling satisfied more quickly. I guess it’s because my version of sweet is real food, which is maybe why it hits the spot for me. Who knows?

All I do know is what my body likes and I can tell when I may have had too much sweet, it clearly gives the signal – time for some savoury/salty stuff now. So that’s why I love this Cheese Chips recipe!
