Creamy, Raw & Grassfed - Take a Page out of Someone Else’s Recipe Book
Gathering for a meal, especially in the comfort of someone’s home, that has been prepared by hand, is right for so many reasons. It’s steeped in many cultures and, when it involves good, truly natural ingredients, it’s far better for your health than eating out regularly or eating on the run. But it’s human nature to become tired of something if you’re doing it too regularly and it’s in those moments of disinterest where we often lose sight of why we’re performing an act, like cooking at home, in the first place.
Trying new recipes and presenting your favorite, healthy ingredients in a new light is important. We love the classics but we know it’s important to mix things up now and then. Today we went down the dairy road in search of new recipes to share with our customers that present the opportunity to use delicious grass-fed and/or raw dairy products like butter, cream, milk, and cheese. Not all the recipes we’re sharing indicate the use of raw or grass-fed but they are ALWAYS the best (read: healthiest) option. Also, a few recipes use parmesan in small quantities, which means it’s safe to swap something from our raw cheese store instead, and you won’t jeopardize the recipe.
In the case of Dutch Meadows, our dairy comes from 100% grass-fed cows and is also certified organic. Our Dutch Belt Cows are known for the higher contents of the A2A2 Casein Protein which can help for digestibility when drinking the milk. These Dutch Belt Cows have extremely small fat globules in the molecules of their milk, making their milk almost naturally homogenized, great tasting and easier to digest. Their milk tests 3.5 -5.5 percent butter fat, also making it an ideal drinking milk. Our grass-fed milk also carries up to five times more healthful CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), which is a good fatty acid that has been shown to offer a number of health benefits including lowering cholesterol and triglycerides, enhancing the immune system, lowering insulin resistance, and promoting muscle growth.
Now that those health benefits have you ready to go, it’s time to dive into some recipes that you may not typically try at home. We hope you’ll comment below with your own recipes, too!
