Every year around Christmas time, my husband enjoys a few Gingerbread Cookies. I’ve been meaning to try and make him some for a few years now. This year is finally the year!
This article is the answer to a question I’ve been asked many times – “But isn’t chicken full of PUFA?” So along with the answer, you also get a recipe for Baked Chicken Breast – so can you guess what my answer is going to be?!
Everyone needs an easy curry recipe in their repertoire.
A lovely new follower of my blog and books, found a picture on my Instagram of this Coconut Fish Curry which I haven’t made for years. She was looking for the recipe on my blog but couldn’t find it, because it wasn’t there!
So thanks for your lovely request! I made it again to ensure it works and made a slight change, complete with Ray Peat Inspired twist. So this easy curry recipe is how I would make it now and is still delicious. Enjoy!
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?”
Everyone loves fruity muffins, but they’re even better for your health when they are Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins!
I was trying to think of other things to have for breakfast instead of eggs, fruit and Greek yogurt or the 5 other options in my Zen Beach Diet book. All are fabulous choices but sometimes you want something that still fits the Ray Peat Inspired eating model, but is a little different. The fact that it can be eaten with the amazing protein filled cottage cheese and zesty marmalade is just an added bonus.
While grass-fed meat is definitely on the Ray Peat menu, a veggie burger recipe can fit in the diet too.
A diet for a fast metabolism includes sweet fruity treats, so this Chewy Plum Fudge recipe fits the bill.
When people start eating a Dr Ray Peat type of diet they think, “look saturated fat is protective so gimme all the ice cream, let me put butter on everything and what do you mean a handful of grated cheese at every meal may be too much?”
20 kgs (40lbs) overweight a few months later and they wonder what happened!
Saturated fat IS protective, but only in the right doses.
A gluten free fruit cake recipe comes in handy because when eating for high metabolism, you will need to incorporate quite a bit of fruit.
Since I started reading and blogging about the Ray Peat way of eating – it’s been about 3 years now – my realisation is that 90% of people put on weight when they start eating this way.
(I did a survey on my One Ten Toned –Slimbirdy – Eating Peaty FB Group and the result was 88% with weight gain – so very close.)
This Rice Bake recipe was created due to the outrageously long-term summer heat in Brisbane, and my laziness!
I just don’t want to cook elaborate meals every day, especially after a workday. So we needed to be able to cook something once and eat it for the rest of the week. We do add other things to switch it up, but at least half the cooking and thinking about it is already done.
The flavours of this Butter Chicken recipe are amazing and the secret twist – I use all vegetables and no chicken.
Who’s heard of protein fasting?
It’s supposed to be the safest way to tap into autophagy (body protein recycling) without wrecking your metabolism and hormones like regular intermittent fasting tends to do, especially for women. I personally tried both intermittent fasting during the day and also at night, using the minimum hours recommended. In both cases my body temperature fell over time, which is a sign of a slowing metabolism.
More on that another time but in the meantime, a big batch Butter Chicken recipe that saves you cooking for a few days at least.
