You’ve seen it on social media and used in recipes – and we’re telling you all about why we LOVE GHEE! Plus a look a our week with lots of seafood and “brinner,” plus why Stacy is wearing butter on her legs!
Eating seafood every week is part of our plan to minimize inflammation and ensure we are getting all the micronutrients we need to continue managing health conditions, like Stacy’s autoimmune conditions. And it isn’t hard to do when dinner looks like this! Eastern Market Shrimp Salad (<– recipe on the blog!) on a Cobb salad with candied bacon from My Paleo Patisserie.
We love family brunch on Sunday mornings – this week it was gluten-free crab cakes from our local butcher and fried eggs. The game of choice was a brand new one we CANNOT STOP PLAYING: MACHI KORO. Mornings like this with the boys give me all the feels and help remind me what’s important: being healthy, happy, and TOGETHER.
We are a family of breakfast-fanatics… so naturally breakfast for dinner (“brinner”) happens a lot in our house. All of these dishes were from Ditch the Wheat, a brand new book we’ve been cooking out of lately: baked eggs, grain-free waffles, and get this: Meat French Toast!! Flavorful breakfast sausage with apples and raisins, dredged in egg, fried until golden and drizzle with maple syrup. Recipe —> here if you’re drooling now!!
Two obsessions captured in one photo: butter leggings and handstands! I’ve been wearing (and totally loving) LuLaRoe clothing, both around the house and at work. It’s comfortable, fashionable, and made of amazing quality fabrics. If you want to know more or get your own buttery-smooth leggings, I will be hosting a boutique (through Facebook) to benefit one of my favorite charities: Heifer International. More details below!

Ghee on Everything
What’s Ghee you ask? Ghee (rhymes with knee) is something we use almost daily. It’s simply butter that’s been simmered until three things happen: all of the water evaporates, the milk solids separate out, and it takes on a caramelized nutty flavor.Brown Butter Ghee is even toastier and nuttier (and sooo good!!).
Why do we love it? The casein and lactose separate out, making this product perfect for those of us who don’t tolerate dairy. The Tin Star brand is even certified lactose and casein free! Plus, ghee has a very high smoke point, so it is great to cook with. And it tastes like a caramelized butter (think the liquid gold you are offered when order crab legs), so there’s that…
Want an incredible deal? Our favorite place to stock up on Paleo essentials, One Stop Paleo Shop, carries Tin Star Ghee and is able to offer it for the lowest price we’ve seen! We’re talking double digit savings!! Plus, OSPS offers free shipping on orders over $99, which we love to take advantage of by buying bulk of our favorite items & already discounted PaleoParents boxes!
