Ghee is a form of butter that is an integral part of traditional Indian cuisine. It is clarified butter, which means that the water and milk solids (mostly proteins) have been boiled off, leaving just the rich, golden butterfat.
Ghee can be part of your nourishing lifestyle, too! Just make sure you choose the high-quality organic version, made from pasture-fed cows. Look for ghee in your local health foods store, or order online!
Top 5 Reasons to Love Ghee
1. Ghee is free of casein and other milk solids. If you're intolerant to butter, try ghee! It’s a healthy alternative to health-depleting vegetable oils. A high quality product is a great source of healthy fats to incorporate into your diet.
2. Ghee is great for cooking because the fatty acids are stable at high temperatures.
3. Ghee stimulates the production of stomach acid, increases the absorption of other nutrients, and is very supportive for acid reflux, ulcers, and other digestive complaints.
4. Ayruveda teaches us that ghee may be beneficial for balancing lipid levels, promoting learning and memory, strengthening the immune system, and warding off pathogens and cancer.
5. Ghee is packed with flavor and a fantastic way to complement your autumnal meals!
Remember, as with any product from an animal, make sure your ghee comes fromorganically raised and properly nourished animals.
Did you know Ginger and Mango both boost your metabolism? Along with
boosting your metabolism ginger also is a natural pain reliever, from
migraines to menstrual cramps ginger heals a lot of pain. It also helps
reduce morning or motion sickness and banishes heart burn! Mangos not
only boost metabolism, they also aid in digestion, boost your memory and
increases your sex drive! This one little drink will do a lot for your
body, so make a big pitcher today and enjoy.
I have made this in a 2 liter pitcher, in a giant sun tea container
and in a cleaned out venti Starbucks cup. This recipe is for the
largest, the 4 liter sun tea pitcher. If you want to do a smaller
pitcher cut the recipe in half, in a small cup use just one very thin
slice of ginger and 1/8 cup mango.
You can use fresh or frozen mango, I like frozen because I don’t have
to cut and it is always picked at the peak of the season and frozen so
if I can’t get mango…
