Almond flour would not work the same way as wheat flour or corn starch. It is the starch that does the thickening, it is a chemical reaction, not just a suspension of particles. I like to use egg yolk, and thicken with the protien. Take the... (more)

You do not need our permission to eat an old world food, some meats are cured with sugar and that is a big difference than adding a cup for your sweet tooth. Enjoy it all.

Sounds like you're just flushing money down the toilet to me. At 450-900 grams of protein per day, you're simply not going to utilize that in the most efficient way. You're eating 2-4 times too much over what you likely need.

Tallow has a smoke point of around 420 F, so I'm pretty sure you're correct in thinking that you've kept it well below the smoke point. (No harm in using a thermometer next time to see how hot it gets, though!) And yes, tallow (and fat in general)... (more)
