I'm no expert, but as far as I've researched, butter, coconut oil and olive oil are the best things to cook with. So you're probably good, as long as there's no secret veg oil in the butter.

Butter is fantastic for scrambled eggs, fried eggs and some vegetables that do not require high heat. Good-quality ghee is the go-to fat for high-heat frying though, as its smoke point is much higher.
I make bulletproof-like coffee most mornings, but some days I don't have time to make it in the morning and just drink it black. I'd like to make a caffeine free butter tea when I get home from work on those days, but I have never seen a recipe... (more)

This common sensation has become pretty foreign to me since starting Paleo. Since about 30 minutes after a big lunch I've been all sleepy and fatigued. It's been 2 hours now and getting worse. Lunch consisted of pretty much just a small... (more)

Idk that there's any way to know, aside from removing things 1 by 1, then adding them back in and seeing what caused it. It also happened once, so it may not be anything that's any sort of big deal.
