We use coconut oil mainly, olive oil somewhat but cannot find a store-bought mayonnaise made solely with these. All have either safflower, sunflower, soybean or canola or a combination of these. Of these which would best choice if only used... (more)

Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid, which means that you must eat it. Linoleic acid, is present in many foods including vegetable fats/oils and animal fat/oils. Virtually all oils contain some amount (some contain only trivial amounts) of... (more)
If you usually on travel, you don't often have the chance to cook your own food. And the food in restaurants/caterer almost never cook with saturated fat, how do you deal with it?
well certainly eating oily food is going to give you oily-unhealthy results. what you could do is eat more fruits during traveling. this way you could shift the weight from oily foods to healthy foods. try and think about all the healthy food... (more)
So I've been using a locally made rape seed oil for frying in. Its cold pressed and as far as I can tell there are no chemicals involved in its manufacture. All the local chefs swear by it, and its got quite a big following here. This is the... (more)
If this has already been asked, sorry! I couldn't find it anywhere. Anyway.. I have been wondering for some time now why vegetable oil seems to be shunned in this community, along with canola oil. I have often seen them referred to as... (more)
http://www.marksdailyapple.com/healthy-oils/ http://www.marksdailyapple.com/dear-mark-canola-oil/ You can make coconut oil at home if you really needed to. But it's much easier to go to a store and buy it. And this is why health-conscious people... (more)
I've been paleo for a couple months. About 30 mins ago I stupidly ate 1/3 of a cake which I baked a few weeks ago then stuck in the freezer. It was one of those Betty Crocker box mix things. Made with lots of vegetable oil and conventional eggs.... (more)
I travel A LOT for work, so I have to eat out like 10 times a week. I'm used to asking servers to substitute out the potatoes, leave the sauce on the side, hold the bread, or even "I don't eat gluten or any grains whatsoever". However, I... (more)
Is the issue of vegetables oils and excess omega-6 to omega-3 ratio the issue that separates Paleo/Primal/WAPF/Ancestral from other whole food or other ways of eating? Is there another issue that you think fills this role better? It also seems... (more)
I think the difference is the lack of fear of meat and saturated fat. Sure n3/n6 balance, avoiding sugar and cereal grains are really important. But what keeps people away from paleo is the fear of meat and fat.
Hi all, I know we all mostly love our Kerrygold round these parts, so I was interested to see their new spreadable product - Kerrygold with olive oil: http://goo.gl/RgQBX Unfortunately, when I got this home and actually read the back of the... (more)
So, I found this recipe for xo sauce, which sounds pretty amazing, but it calls for two cups of vegetable oil. I don't think olive oil would quite be the right flavor. I do think coconut oil would be an excellent flavor combination, but I worry... (more)
I purchased some Spectrum Butter Flavored Veg Shortening--it is really just Palm Oil and the natural flavoring is from Sunflower oil. Is this Primal OK ?
Canola oil is rapeseed oil that has been refined to be odorless. Unrefined rapeseed oil is a common cooking oil here in China. Now, I'm perfectly content to use delicious, delicious lard all the time. But every now and then I might want to make... (more)
It's been said before, but since the question came up again I figured the definitive (in my mind at least) article on canola oil was worth mentioning... CANOLA OIL STUDIES (excerpt from The Great Con-ola by Sally Fallon) Full article can be... (more)
Many paleos use olive oil sparingly (cold, not for cooking) on salads etc., but I never see any referrences to hemp oil. Phytic acid is not an issue with hemp oil and it's O6 to 03 ratio is 3:1. If you are willing to throw olive oil on a salad... (more)
I want to substitute a better (for me) oil when a recipe calls for vegetable oil. I don't want to use olive or coconut oil for the taste changing properties. What substitutes work well fo you?
Traditionally many paleo related blogs and persons have stated that olive oil is good for cooking but recently people have been claiming that you should ditch it with other vegetable oils and use lard, ghee or coconut oil instead. What is your... (more)
Hello all, been following this website for quite some time and now i finally have a question to ask. For a school project I need to write a website evaluation on a topic exploring the health effects of vegetable oils. I need one good... (more)
I know it's not ideal, but I don't have full control over all the food I eat and I was just wondering is it better to eat meat cooked with vegetable oil than to be eating bread etc? I have a tendency to eat grains when I feel that I can't have the... (more)
I was at a breakfast joint this morning to pick up my morning coffe. There were two chicks in front of me kinda of arguing that their own breakfast was "better" than the other's. One girl ordered eggs, sausage patty with hash browns (i'm sure... (more)
Plain bagel -> refined white flour, which will always lose to cut up Potatoes in a paleo world. But they're both questionable as the quality and amount of oil used on the hashbrowns goes downhill.
Im curious what you all think of vegetable fat/animal fats & their place in our diets... What has made me question it is how great i feel when i eat animal fat & im noticing when i eat more than a tablespoon of coconut oil i get chest... (more)
The wok and cast iron pan are easy - I can heat coconut oil in them after they've been cleaned and coat the cooking surface. That doesn't work as well for the grinding plates and blades of the meat grinder. I'm looking for an oil that: Is viscous... (more)
Best thing to use would be FOOD GRADE silicone spray. It's specifically made for protecting blades and plates between uses. Any type of oil or fat will run the risk of turning rancid and gummy between uses.
If it seems to work for me then it's paleo right? I also seem to get a bit of a kick from hydrogenated vegetable oils. Any reason why I should avoid these foods since they don't seem to cause me any trouble?
I recently ordered two 1lb roasted unsalted macadamia nuts online, only to find out they're roasted with cottonseed oil/canola oil SHUDDER I was like CRAP. Can't return it since I already opened one bag and returning one small bag would be a big... (more)
First off I want to mention that I never eat out at all. I eat what I make everyday, every meal. I was just curious as to how those of you who do go out to eat manage to avoid vegetable oil, soy, wheat, msg etc. or do you not avoid it at all... (more)
So, I find it fairly easy to avoid veg oils when I cook at home. But when dining out this is obviously a problem. I prefer to not lock myself in the house in order to avoid veg oils, but really... why must they be so prevalent? My partner, an... (more)
