managing an LCHF lifestyle in Israel
Restaurants and bakeries and coffee shops can get ahold of it but not us “regular” people. I don’t like that. Why should I be deprived of the good stuff?
At the supermarkets here in Israel, you can only get up to 38% fat content. And there are all kinds of additives in the cream. To make it thicker. Why? Leave the fat and there won’t be any need for additives!
In most “regular” restaurants there are usually some vegetarian options on the menu. For those customers who don’t eat animals. Very considerate and just as it should be to please the customers, good for business, whatever. But why is there never an “animal” option in vegetarian restaurants? Am I not a good enough customer? Shouldn’t I be pleased too? At least an omelet?
Some coffee shops don’t have cream. They have regular milk, low-fat milk, and even soy milk, but not cream. Why? Don’t they want happy customers?
I really am for pluralism and think that everybody should be able to live their lives as they please (as long as they don’t hurt anyone else) so let’s do that! Keep the low fat products on the dairy shelves in the supermarkets but add the full fat options too! Sounds like a win-win to me. And it’s definitely worth it as there’s a growing market for full fat products. Just look around. How many of your friends have gone LCHF or Paleo lately? Or at least don’t fear fat anymore?
I want full-fat cream in my coffee!!!
