So given my latest direction of Ray Peat inspired eating, custard would have to be one of the most perfect dessert foods. Milk, sugar, maybe eggs, maybe gelatin – they’re all on the preferred foods list for optimal health in Ray’s opinion. So it’s not like you are cheating in any way when you eat this – you’re supposed to be!
So perhaps I should put ‘guilt free’ in the title?
I am slowly working my way through my recipes and tweaking them to be less full of nuts, less fats and introducing more Ray Peat friendly ingredients to offer maximum nutrition, even if it is a sweet treat. The Applesauce Four Ingredient Brownies turned out perfectly!
Good fats are great like cacao butter, coconut oil, even grass-fed normal butter, however when the fudge you are eating is equivalent to a tablespoon of fat each mouthful, well ‘the too much of a good thing’ rule may very well apply.
Did you know that sugar is actually a powerful metabolic food that feeds every cell in your body? The biggest problem though, is that we all eat it incorrectly, then blame the sugar for being bad for us. Anyway, that’s a thought bubble for another post!
So for those who still allow a little sugar in your life, here is a super easy light sweetened condensed milk ice cream that easily trumps store bought chemical-filled options, and tastes amazing!
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.
