Happy Solstice

Well Happy Solstice, a day late, to all!

Bit of a bummer yesterday with working a late shift and needing a mega shop for the food for over the next week or so. After my bed time before the car was unloaded!

But I don't think we will run out of cream or butter. Phew!

All the best to all

Happy Solstice to you too Peter. A bonus that the the world didn't end too!
For me it's the most significant event in the year. The days are growing longer from now on.
I look forward now to the day after New Year's day, when life gets back to normal, however good or grim that may be.
May you enjoy lot's of quality saturated fat over the shutdown and keep on blogging.

Happy Winter Solstice to you too!

We just had a "survivors" or The Day After party, last night. We had a fresh uncured thick cut bacon barbecued on a bonfire. Beautiful night!

Happy belated Solstice, Peter, and Happy early Newtonmas.

I'll drink a cup of cream in your honor tonight.

Oh and happy everything to all your commenters too, even the trolls and obesity researchers, they always supply me with cheap entertainment.

Happy Holidays to you and yours Peter!

Question regarding potato diet. What effect do you think using coconut oil might have if used in place of butter or olive oil when cooking potatoes? Would you be able to use more of it?

Peter said...

I think coconut oil is very complex in metabolic terms... I've no wish to try the potato diet so it holds relatively little interest beyond being a comprehension exercise!

Theoretically yes, but it impacts the liver far more than the periphery. It certainly causes a systemic hyperinsulinaemia in rats, contrary to what you would expect. Ultimately calories matter in triggering insulin resistance at the cellular level and within the liver MCTs provide a ton of hepatic calories.......
