Post image for You Are What You Eat

It’s a phrase that I’ve heard for years upon years, but one that never quite made any sense to me: You are what you eat. Am I today a bowl of udon noodles? Was I last night a plate of quinoa and sauteed kale? An avocado in the morning and a bean burrito by noon? But after one fateful yoga class, it will now forever make sense to me. Read more »

It looks yummy and you can really see the the thick consistency of this smoothie. Guess that's what avocado is for, it is so creamy yet very chocolatey. I should try this as soon as possible. HA HA.

There are few things, in my eyes, that beat the taste of a freshly baked brownie. Warm, dense, chocolatey, and just a tad undercooked… Pure sweet bliss. Read more »

Made this cake two times following the recipe perfectly. Recipe does not work. No way did this blogger achieve that red color without the use of food coloring and/or photoshop. I am an experienced baker and work in food media. The first time it didn't work, I chocked it up to user error. When it didn't work a second time, I knew it was the recipe itself. I ended up with a slightly reddish/pinkish brown color. The cake itself was rather bland too.
Sara -Feb 22, 2014, 8:03AM
I tried the recipe yesterday, because it looks really awesome, and I followed step by step. I even had trouble finding some of the ingredients, such as the coconut oil (in Spain is not very common and it was really expensive, by the way). I didn't miss any of the steps and ingredients (all room temperature) and I didn't get this perfect red velvet colour, in fact it ended being brown, so upset for this... Because I was willing to make this cake since I don't remember when :(

I love the nutty smell it gives off and when I use it to cook I get a smoother, more even taste. Works great for sautéing. I use it when I make mushroom and onion rice, and it definitely makes me feel less guilty than butter or other oils.
Amber -Jun 18, 2014, 10:27AM
My favorite use of ghee is in my coffee, yes coffee. I pour my cup of coffee (black) into the blender, add a spoonful of ghee and whip it up! It gives it the most amazing butterscotch taste that will keep you full all morning if you're in a rush. Best of all no tummy aches after.

From a Bio-Chemistry perspective saturated fats ("fatty acid tails" people) are the second best for us. The best "fat" would be unsaturated... However it does not exist in milk form so it's kind of pointless. I love this post though!!
jessi -Feb 13, 2014, 3:42PM
i completely agree with emma, not all fats are bad for you. that's like saying not to eat avocados..theyre pure fat but the good kind of fat. the fat in dairy milk provides you with nutrients you need. I'm not a big milk drinking because its always given me stomach aches but I always keep a carton of organic milk in my fridge. dairy milk is NOT unhealthy and you shouldn't promote it as unhealthy. if youre drinking whole milk every day then yes that can be unhealthy but drinking non fat organic milk is perfectly fine.
