Look at the image below and try to figure out what the difference between the meal in the pan and the meal on the dish is.
Can you guess? 🙂
Not limited to LCHF diet, but fats should be added on top of the meals. Some of the fats are chemically stable enough and can be used for cooking (like coconut oil), but not only fatty acids are contained in fats – but also micronutrients. If you add butter while still cooking the meal, there’s a danger you will destroy some of its beneficial ingredients.
So. The difference is in the fat content: the meal is the same. In the pan, there is minimum fat content – just enough for cooking the veggies and the eggs, whereas on the dish, there is two generous slices of butter and a spoon of kaymak (clotted cream) added.
