My family and I will be doing the Whole30 during the month of January. My husband and I feel like we really both need a “reset” so to speak just to get our sugar cravings and individual relationships with food back in check. If you’re familiar with the Whole30, you’ll know that ghee is a major cooking staple (If you aren’t familiar with the Whole30, you can find out more here).
What is ghee?
Ghee is clarified butter, that is a staple in Indian cooking. It’s perfect for the Whole30 because when the butter is clarified, the milk solids separate and are strained away. The golden liquid that is left still has the rich butter taste, but without the milk proteins, so many people who cannot tolerate dairy are able to enjoy ghee.
You can buy ghee at most stores, but it’s important that you are buying high quality grass-fed ghee, and that can get expensive. So, if you have the time (and it doesn’t take long!), this can be a real money saver.

That’s it! It’s a super simple process to have a nutritious and flavorful oil to cook with, and if you’re sensitive to dairy or doing a Whole30, this process is SO worth it to be able to enjoy that buttery flavor.
Have you ever done a Whole30? Have you made homemade ghee? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
