We bought this Instant Pot from Amazon around 5 months ago, and it’s been put to some amazing uses – like making this super tender beef short ribs recipe.
I wasn’t into cooking at all before I started a Paleo diet. In fact, my knowledge of cooking was practically non-existent.
But that all changed when I got into a Paleo diet – in fact, I started to really enjoy cooking. And I started accumulating cookware and equipment.
These 4 pieces of cooking equipment have made my life and Paleo diet so much easier, and I hope you find them helpful too.
What Is Ghee?
Ghee is clarified butter (i.e., the oil that’s left after removing the milk solids from butter). Ghee is very commonly used in Indian cooking, but you’ll also find many French chefs using clarified butter.
And if you want to know more about the benefits of ghee, then check out our article here.
If making your own ghee is too much hassle, then I highly recommend this delicious brand made with grass-fed butter and cultured so that pretty much all the lactose and casein is removed.
How To Make Ghee In Slow Cooker
It’s pretty simple and quick, and you can make ghee yourself in the slow cooker (or crockpot) in a couple of hours. If you don’t have a slow cooker or crockpot, then you can use a regular pot on a stove (I recommend one with high sides to minimize the splattering).
I picked up a foam roller several years ago after my chiropractor recommended it.
I used it initially to help get rid of my chronic knee pain (it definitely helped), but over time I’ve also found that it’s amazing for rolling out a lot of kinks in my muscles – from my back (from slouching too much) to my lats (from rock climbing).
It’s like a whole body massager!
Foam rollers have gotten popular in many gyms as a way to roll out your muscles after exercising to prevent muscle soreness the next day (my CrossFit recommended it for that reason), but it can be a super cheap and great way to stretch and massage your muscles even if you don’t exercise!
Even though there are foam rollers at my gym, I find them so helpful that I keep one in my study and roll on it when I’m taking a break.
This is the foam roller I bought from Amazon for $13.99 (the 6×18 round). And read the rest of this article for 4 exercises to start getting rid of the kinks in your body.
This recipe is a modified version of one that Jana, one of our readers, sent in. As soon as I saw her recipe, I knew it was going to be a winner, and I asked her if I could try making it with some modifications and then share the recipe with everyone.
She very generously agreed, so here it is! Thanks Jana!
(Even if you don’t eat much fish, give this recipe a try. It’s really really good especially with the garlic ghee!) And an AIP version of this recipe will be posted here soon.
