    Cream - Do You Include It In Your Shopping List?

    Post by Jan1 on Tue May 05 2015, 20:04

    If you live the LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) lifestyle, or know about this lifestyle you are aware that many now refer to the 'HF' ( High Fat) as Healthy Fats ... foods like cream, butter, flax, cheese, avocado, nuts, and olive oil - in fact the foods that are pictured just above. They are all on my shopping list because these are the fats that I use on a daily basis. Obviously high in calories but also full of essential nutrients. As I've written before my lifestyle is low carb, no more than 50 a day, with higher healthy fats and moderate protein. It is a balance that suits me, although each of us has to find our own balance, and obviously take into account any food allergies, or underlying health condition.

    Now, you may use 'single cream' or like me prefer to use double cream. ( In some countries I believe it's called heavy cream ). Of course, if you live in the UK, and in particular the South West of England, then you can enjoy the wonderful taste that is clotted cream:

    Clotted cream, sometimes called scalded, clouted, Devonshire or Cornish cream, is a thick cream made by indirectly heating full-cream cow's milk using steam or a water bath and then leaving it in shallow pans to cool slowly. During this time, the cream content rises to the surface and forms 'clots' or 'clouts'.

    Although its origin is uncertain, the cream's production is commonly associated with dairy farms in South West England and in particular the counties of Devon and Cornwall. Read More About Clotted Cream Here:

    Are any (or all) of the items I mentioned at the beginning of this article on your shopping list?

    All the best Jan
