Sorry, Hammervision, Butter Goes On My Muffin, Not In My Coffee!


Some people put cream in their joe

At a restaurant or on the go.

But now there's a trend

For a buttery blend.

What will they use  next?  Oleo?

  • March of 2013 I cut 80% of my carb intake, increased my fat and vegetables. Every morning I put either a tablespoon of grass fed butter or virgin coconut oil in my coffee, in time for our September vacation I lost 20 pounds with no significant cardio. The diet is now a life style.

    Aquinas, in the late 80's the food pyramid changed carb intake from 3-4 servings to 6-11 and the rest was history, America became fat. Just compare grass fed beef to grain fed. When they want to fatten a farm animal they feed them grain.

    The coffee is pretty amazing stuff, supposedly butter and coconut oil are medium chain fats that easily breakdown to energy, kind of feels like a sugar rush that doesn't crash.

    You can't argue with success. But just the same, 4zen, I think I'll eat healthy in other ways.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Just another way to 'skin the cat.'

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Which reminds me, when riding a bus past a Chinese restaurant, someone mentioned, "did you notice that there aren't any cats in this neighborhood?"

  • Lard. Unless Rachael Ray pushes her EVOO.

    BTW, her recipe for rapini was pretty good.

  • In reply to jack:

    Good Lard! ...I mean 'Lord'.

  • In reply to jack:

    EVOO? Was that Olive Oyl before she met Popeye?

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    You'll have to ask Popeye about that one, but I couldn't figure out why Popeye was attracted to someone who lacked assets and other female parts. On the other hand, there may have been more to his spinach than spinach, but there wasn't a Balco probe then.

    At least we know what Wimpy ate. I thought Wimpy actually owned the hamburger stand in the Loop with that name.

    Getting back to butter, I like oatmeal with cocoa powder on top, and then melt some butter on top of that.

  • Jack, that last comment reads more like an oatmeal cookie recipe than cereal... not that I mean this in a bad way at all!

    As for butter in coffee, it reminds me of all the reviews of (bad) diners that talk about oily looks on the top of the coffee. Oleo-y instead of oily? Now I wonder!

  • In reply to MargaretSerious:

    I don't bake it. I don't really mix it either, but like the combination of the butter melting into the cocoa, and then the whole thing oozing into the cooked oatmeal.

    Sort of similar to putting the syrup on the sausages, as well as the pancakes; actually better on the sausages.
