2020 has vastly redefined how we think about what we eat and how we are nourishing our bodies. We at 4th & Heart are here to help break down all of the new trends you won’t want to miss that will shape how we eat, sip, and shop in 2021 and beyond. 

Our delicious and nutritious 4th & Heart Ghee fits well into all of these 2021 trends, so make sure to stock up before the New Year!


1. Lactose-free Cooking and Baking

Among the many things that 2020 taught us, we learned that lactose-free alternatives are here to stay. 2020 saw a huge surge in popularity for lactose-free milk alternatives such as oat, almond, soy, and macadamia nut milks, and the buck doesn’t stop there – these trends are translating into lactose-free cooking and baking as well. Use 4th & Heart Ghee in any cooking or baking recipe to get the delicious, buttery taste you love without any of the troublesome lactose or casein!

2. Be Your Own Barista

Let’s be real: we’re hard pressed to find something more important than our morning cup of coffee. With lots more time at home these days, people are investing in their daily brews in a big way – with at-home espresso machines, matcha kits, alternative lattes, and golden mylk. 

For anyone looking to be their own barista this January, we recommend starting your day off right with a delicious ghee coffee: the low-carb, high-fat coffee beverage intended to give you *all* of the nutrients that a big breakfast normally would! Try adding a heaping spoonful of 4th & Heart Vanilla Bean Ghee to your next morning coffee and blend for thirty seconds. The result will blow your mind – all the creamy, dreamy flavor of a typical latte without any creamer or milk!

3. A Renewed Focus on Nourishing Breakfasts 

Nowadays, most people aren’t rushing out the door to commute to work, freeing up tons of time to allow you to start your day off right. Turns out, mom was right – breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. 

Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Try soft-scrambling some eggs in our Himalayan Pink Salt Ghee, or adding a dollop of our Vanilla Bean Ghee into your pancake batter for an out of this world start to your day! 


4. The Year of Exploring New Cooking Oils

Folks are taking a hard look at their pantries and reevaluating what cooking oils are the best choices for the health and wellness of their families. For years, olive oil and vegetable oil have been kitchen mainstays, but the tide is shifting towards cooking oils that have more functional benefits and properties that make them safer to cook with at high temperatures!

We have good news for you – ghee can do everything olive oil or canola oil can do, and more. Our ghee’s delicious, buttery flavor coupled with its high smoke point of 485ºF make it the perfect fat for just about anything. Whether you’re searing, sautéing, pan-frying, or baking, ghee should be your go-to. If you’re looking to switch up what oils you use in the kitchen, try using our Sprayable or Pourable 4th & Heart Ghee Oil instead of your typical cooking oils! Trust us, you’ll never go back. 


We can’t wait to see what all of you cook up in 2021! Until then, don’t forget to stock up on 4th & Heart Ghee whether that’s in a store near you, from our online store, or from Amazon
