I am absolutely obsessed with the new product I found in my favorite health store. Ghee Butter! Yesss! For those of you who don’t know, it is a clarified butter that originated in ancient India and is commonly used in South Asian cuisines and traditional medicine.
It is the main ingredient in some of the Ayurvedic medicines and Indian food. Ghee is pure butterfat cooked longer until all moisture is removed and the milk solids are caramelized and then filtered out. While butter is not necessarily bad for you, ghee has health benefits that make it healthier than butter.
So, my lunch today was: Sesame ghee butter, gluten free bread, asparagus, ricotta cheese, vegetable salad, and of course, my cold pressed juice!
