I noticed on a recent episode of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney was shown drinking butter? But why? I had to do my research and came to find Kourtney was actually drinking ghee. Ghee is a type of clarified butter that is common in Indian cuisine.

Many women incorporate a tablespoon or two of ghee into their diet during pregnancy because it is said to help with your baby’s brain development. Kourtney did just have her second baby, but she’s not pregnant anymore.

Even though ghee is a saturated fat and high in fat and calories, in moderation it does seem to have some health benefits. Ghee actually helps your body absorb more of the vitamins and minerals that you consume. It also helps lubricate stiff joints, gives your skin a glow, and helps with digestion.

Moderation is key and drinking butter of any sort is going to pack on calories and in turn end up causing weight gain and increase the risk of things like cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.

In a recent interview Kourtney explains that she drinks ghee mainly for beauty reasons.

“I drink a teaspoon of liquid ghee first thing every morning and then wait 20 minutes before eating or drinking anything. The oil has been great for my hair and skin. I don’t think it’s for everyone though.

Want to give it a try? Here is a Ghee Recipe:

1. Melt a couple sticks of butter on a pan over low heat.

2. Don’t stir the butter at all.

3. The butter will separate into three layers: foamy on top, golden in the middle (clarified butter), white liquid on the bottom (the milk solid).

4. Remove the white foamy top with a spoon.

5. Turn off the heat and allow the remaining two layers to cool for several minutes.

6. Pour it slowly through a cheesecloth (or something similar) until you get all the golden liquid out so only the milk solids are left.

7. Use an air-tight container, and store it in the fridge.

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had a
    tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!

     
  • Very Interesting! My hubby uses clarified butter to cook with, but I may have to try it, just because I can. ;)

    Thanks for sharing!

  • I just watched that episode and I flipped. It’s interesting to know that it was actually ghee. I remember my mom mixing ghee and rice when I didn’t want to eat vegetables. I loved ghee and rice as a kid, where I live right now, I can’t seem to find it.

    Wrong. You don’t have to refrigerate ghee. It is fine to keep in your cabinets up to six months after opening. Secondly, the calorie and fat content are not the problem regarding weight gain. Weight gain will occur when you eat any sugar, processed food, or wheat. I follow the caveman diet, aka Paleo, and we don’t count calories or fat. I recommend reading about it, it’s awesome, healthy, and a safe,sure way to lose weight. No more dieting for me!

     
  • Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
