Years ago when we lived on a rural farm in Tennessee, we milked a high fat Jersey cow and I made raw unpasteurized butter weekly. We didn't have refrigeration, so we would keep it cool by placing it in a jar and dropping it in the water of the spring head, where the waters kept a constant temperature of 55 degrees. The spring head was down hill from the house, so when you wanted butter, you would need to trek down and get it. It was a lot of work for butter, but it was the pioneering 'Back to the Land" period, and back then who wouldn't walk a mile for sweet butter?
Today at Diet For Living Center we know all that butter fat is no longer the best for us. We teach and serve a plant based menu, so that the body may cleanse, repair, and rebuild. We love, love Artisana Raw Organic Coconut Butter. Fresh made from whole coconut flesh and the oil. You may want to read 'The Healing Miracles of Coconut Oil', by Bruce Fife, N.D. For centuries people in Asia and the South Pacific have consumed coconut oils without experiencing the degenerative diseases so common in the West.
It was one of the first Raw Foods I was introduced to when we began the Raw Foods Diet. My first response was, 'Now here's a lifestyle I can be content with'. Raw coconut oil is so one of the most delicious foods, it makes you want to weep. I also give a teaspoon to our dog Lillian everyday to keep her skin healthy. It seems to be working, she looks great! But of course, I am very biased when it comes to Lillian.
