“Have I mentioned that I love heavy whipping cream? Because I do.”
My friend eyed me warily as I lifted the carton to my lips. I paused for a moment, giving him a pointed look, and didn’t break the staring contest as I drained three-quarters of the carton in several (immensely manly) gulps.
“Delicious,” I added, once I could see the fear in his eyes. “I feel so saturated right now.”
Is that weird? That’s probably weird. But let’s call it a neat segue into the next point: dairy is weird. In the Paleo context, at least, it sits firmly in a grey zone, offering a multitude of health benefits paired with legitimate concerns about lactose, casein, etc. Cow products are usually the first to go when people start tweaking what they eat, and while I can’t fault anyone for experimenting, I do feel the anti-dairy crowd is missing a pretty important point: butter tastes amazing. I, uh, might also eat straight butter on occasion.
Ghee, however, has a reputation of universal adoration. Much like coconut oil, it has quickly gained star status in the Paleo community, which should make this next sentence much more exciting than that little story above: I’m giving both of them away!
Hit the jump to hear all about the giveaway I’ve cooked up with Pure Indian Foods.
If you haven’t heard of the company, here’s a brief primer: Pure Indian Foods is a New Jersey-based, family-owned business that makes organic ghee from grass-fed, extraordinarily happy cows. If you haven’t heard of ghee, here’s an even briefer description: it’s butter without the bad.
People with lactose intolerance can usually consume ghee without issue, which should make it incredibly attractive to anyone lacking that buttery flavor in their daily routine. Even regular dairy consumers might want to experiment with it, however, as the clarification process used in its creation tends to richen that same flavor that everyone loves.
I’m a fan of the stuff, in any case, and cook with it almost as frequently as coconut oil. You can also use it as a dip, apparently, which might be the greatest idea I’ve heard all day.
But let’s get to the contest, shall we?
Pure Indian Foods has generously offered three things:
- One 14 oz jar of Grassfed Organic Ghee
- One 14.5 oz jar of Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
- One 6 x 1.1 oz sampler pack of Herbal/Spiced Ghee
This is awesome. I used (and loved) their ghee in the past, so everyone pause a moment to applaud the great generosity on display. If you’re curious about any of these products — especially the last one, which I’m (joking!) tempted to steal for myself — click here to check out the wide variety of nifty things that Pure Indian Foods has to offer.

If you’d like to increase your chances, however, you can do a few things:
If you do either (or both!) of those things, please make mention of it in your comment so I can verify it and then toss your name in the hat one or two more additional times.
And that’s all there is to it!
Some Brief Administration Stuff
It’s been a slow week at Three New Leaves, but with good reason: I have another ebook coming! Look for a debut post next week where I’ll announce the idea and describe it in full. I’m hoping to release it before the World Domination Summit in June, so rest assured all of my free time is being devoted to making this book as spectacular as it can be.
(If you haven’t read Simpler yet, by the way, feel free to do that now.)
Thanks for reading! And what are you waiting for? Leave a comment below to enter the contest!
