What do folks (or science) think about combining fats in one dish?

I was cooking a little while ago, sauteing some vegetables from the garden in lamb fat, to which I added coconut oil and butter.

Good? Bad? Ugly? The fats all seemed good separately. So combined?

Not quite, medium chain triglycerides are treated very differently to long chain triglycerides.

Great question! I think it's all good. If they are o.k. on their own then they are o.k. having a big party together in your belly.

Left turn at the small intestine and it's all the same. A triglyceride is a triglyceride so far as bile is concerned, and Grok didn't know anything more about fat other than it tasted good.

Why not? I eat a burger (beef fat), plus spinach sauteed in butter, plus some coconut milk smoothie.

It all ends up in the same place!

Every time you cook your eggs in butter/bacon or smear oil/fat on poultry before baking you are mixing fats.

If you ask, "Did paleolithic people mix fats?" it's a fair question and I'd still say they probably had ruminant and rabbit/gopher at the same meal so yes. Maybe not the way we do today but yes.

In addition to the ones mentioned first, I commonly have sardines or salmon before or after a beef/poultry meal with an eye to balancing fat types. I also put olive oil on my salads.

I don't want to imagine a lifestyle where I am limited to one fat type per meal.

Seriously.
