You can be sick of traveling, but there's just no need to travel sick. I was in Tampa for a few days and didn't want to risk eating restaurant food...so I hit up the local supermarket and got to work. I say work but I'm that oddball who actually enjoys a challenge like clarifying butter in a hotel bathroom.
The whole process took about 15 minutes and left me with two cups of clean grass-fed butter to get me through a busy long weekend.
Clarified butter just might be the single most important food I added to my healing diet, and it's also in the running for most delicious. I can't seem to handle dairy too well, but clarified butter is all of the fat with none of the milk solids--no milk protein, no problem.
As Dad loves to say, "Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to clarify butter and he eats fried fish for a lifetime." Alright, I might have taken a liberty there, but I think you get his point. Grab yourself a slow-cooker, and let's get started.
I'm Ethan, a guy whose life used to be controlled by ulcerative colitis. As I systematically tested diets, treatments, and all types of health advice to heal my colon, I learned a lot about my own biology and also how to cook without compromise. I'm here to share the best (and sometimes worst) of that journey with you.
