I saw tubs of coconut oil going really cheap the other day. I'm pretty sure it is refined, but not hydrogenated. As it's cheaper than the homemade ghee I've been using, I thought I would buy some. I have two questions though: Is refined coconut... (more)
I was cooking everything in coconut oil but recently started cooking everything in Kerrygold butter because I prefer the taste. I cook at low temps most of the time and use cast iron. Any reasons I shouldnt be cooking with butter? Oxidation? Is... (more)
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.
I eat a low carb version of a paleo diet, mainly high fat meat and vegetables, and was wondering from a nutrient perspective what you would prefer between organic cultured butter from grassfed cows (Organic Pastures brand) which I've then... (more)
Because of many food allergies and sensitivities I've found that I do best on a high fat diet, mainly consuming grassfed/finished fatty beef and a few servings of low carb green veggies daily. I've recently introduced small amounts of raw milk... (more)
My mum was making some home made cakes the other day and I asked her to bake some more without the sugar and to add some coconut to see what they taste like and honestly they're lovely! and I assume pretty healthy? I'm going to try them again with... (more)
Why not coconut flour instead of rice flour? I mean if you're using rice flour, it's basically the same as plain white flour that you find in regular carrot cake (don't tell me it's magically better because it's gluten-free, cake flour barely has... (more)
I'm getting quite confused about which fat to choose.. Coconut oil, mac nuts/brazil nuts, avocado, grass fed butter, olive oil, fish oil, salmon - currently I'm only eating salmon, nuts, coconut oil and avocado, but should I switch to grass fed... (more)
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 just want y'all to outline the pros, cons, and nutritional differences between butter and heavy cream. Also - creative ways to incorporate these into your diet (e.g. "bulletproof coffee") Also - good suggestions on where to get... (more)
Is there a big nutritional difference between heavy cream and butter? Both are grassfed, but I tend to enjoy cream in my coffee more than butter, and am not looking to lose weight. However, if there is some sort of difference between the two... (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)
Has anyone tried using avocado as a substitute for nut butters in baking with any success? We have salicylate allergies which includes all nuts and sunflower seeds . I am also after a good subby for almond flour also please .
Do I need to worry about using butter (grass-fed, if that matters) in high heat cooking, i.e., searing meats, roasting, etc.? I know this is an issue with olive oil where the high heat causes the PUFAs (I think) to become oxidized or unstable... (more)
Hey PH (pun intended?), I'm going through the whole 'what food is doing what' moment right now. When I woke up today I had my usual breakfast: eggs with kerrygold unsalted butter and two slices of bacon. I also had a Granny Smith Apple. I have... (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.
I buy imported butter from France where cows graze (however,not butter made from raw milk). I'm happy with that choice but a sceptical friend asked the following question: If you analyzed regular butter made from milk from factory cows and... (more)
How many of you have ever tried yak butter tea? What did it taste like? Did you like it, and how was your digestion? Have you tried making it at home with cow butter and milk? I guess it's kind of like the bulletbroof coffee.
After losing my fear for saturated fats, I've realized that I am eating 1 block (250g) of butter every 3 days. Is that too much? Now days I am cooking mostly with just butter and I wonder if eating so much of it is a symptom that I should be using... (more)
Is 75g of butter per day too much? Trying to gain weight and eating between 3000-4000 calories a day. Most of the advice i've read is to eat more Fat. I guess its the conventional wisdom i've listened to all my life, wondering if this is too... (more)
