Hi guys! I was wondering about bacon! It's clearly something a lot of people who eat paleo eat! Is there a certain type to eat/not eat?? And presumably it's best to not eat too regularly or is that mainly up to how much you feel is enough?
Nitrate/nitrite-free is a gimmick, don't bother. A little sugar for the cure, completely fine! It's much more important that the actual meat be good quality, rather than focusing excessively on the cure used.
I love this dish and adapt the recipe to make it healthier (no sugar, fry w/coconut oil then add sesame oil once cool) But is it a bad idea to heat the anchovies in coconut oil? I've heard someone (maybe C. Kresser?) say that fish oil quality is... (more)
I liked deep frying my food, like french fries, fish, tempura and the likes before I went paleo a few months ago. Now I would like to toss out the sunflower oil and start deep frying in lard or maybe coconutoil (lard is cheaper here ;) ). But... (more)
I'm a college student with a mandatory 10 meals a week to spend in the cafeteria. I fast through breakfast and typically eat lunch and dinner on weekdays there. The cafeteria options are fairly decent as college goes. I can get roast turkey,... (more)
So, I have recently tried a number of "breaded" paleo recipes such as fried chicken, fried okra, etc. which use a combination of coconut flour and almond flour as the breading. They all seem to have great flavors, but time and again, my "fried"... (more)
Don't use mixes with coconut flour. It makes things gummy.
Who here has used coconut oil for deep frying I'm thinking of opening that vat of coconut oil from tropical traditions to make wings tonight. What else is good in fried coconut oil that you've made?
I deep fried sweet potatoes in coconut oil, and they were terrific--coconut oil is great for frying, it really holds up well. I did it in a saucepan, but have since purchased a small "Fry Daddy," which I hope to try soon. My stove is pretty iffy... (more)
Hello! This is my first post on paleohacks! So I have progressively adjusted my eating habits to the Paleo lifestyle and only up until last Friday night I decided to cheat (uh oh). A couple friends and I went to a local pub and we had a few good... (more)
Can someone explain why it would be bad to use cornmeal to make a coating for baked or fried fish? Especially if this would help make fish more palatable to family resulting in more fish meals?? No other grains and no seed oils are being consumed. (more)
Does anybody have a sense of the main methods our ancient paleo kinsmen used to cook meat? Smoked meat is delicious, but an occasional thing for me because of the polycyclic bad guys. Not a huge issue for cavemen because stomach cancer... (more)
Am going on a fishing trip with a friend for crappies in Wisconsin. Will have access to refrigerated storage and can bring in any ingredients. Traditionally, a trip like this would result in a celebratory feast of fried fish with cornmeal and... (more)
I impulsively bought some smelt today and was worried this whole paleo fish fry thing wouldn't work... but a wash, a dry, a dip in whisked egg, a dip in coconut flour/almond meal/spices + fried in just a little ghee= crispy whole fish goodness. (more)
Hey everyone. I eat 2-3 eggs a day and I am just curious why can't I fry them? Everyone says this is bad. I never eat fried foods but I do like fried eggs because the yokes are runny. It don't understand does it kill the nutrients or something? (more)
Hey! So today i am going out to lunch at red lobster and want to know what the healthiest paleo option is. I am really bad at decision making so i wanted to hear others opinions. or shoould i just make this my cheat meal for the week? i am only... (more)
Most of my cooking as of late has become "meat + butter + pan". I eat plant matter also, but this is the only way I cook my food. How bad is it to eat like this? What health implications are there?
Is that literally your whole diet? There could be some nutritional deficiency issues if meat + butter is your entire diet. And are you sure you are frying? Sauteeing in butter is not frying. You will know if you are frying because you can't really... (more)
Healthy? Unhealthy? Neutral? I just read this http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9035809/Fried-food-heart-risk-a-myth.html#disqus_thread and was curious as to whether or not it changes anybody's mind about anything. (more)
The problem is that it's Spain and the people in the grouping with the lowest amount of fried foods were probably still consuming a significant amount. It's like comparing the sort of crappy to the crappy. As much as I LOVE croquettes, I find it... (more)
I fry our Thanksgiving Turkey every year and usually do it in high quality Canola Oil (yes I know quality and Canola should not be in the same sentence) however I would like to do it in Duck and/or Pork fat. I know this stuff is usually pretty... (more)
I love french fries even though they're extremely NOT paleo. Any thoughts on Duck Fat Fries? The potatoes themselves are not very paleo, but at least you're avoiding the canola oil from standard fries.
