If you want to continue using ghee, you could try using cultured ghee. Many people who are sensitive to regular ghee find they can handle the cultured stuff.

From what I can gather, some Paleos prefer to avoid butter due to the dairy association. In my opinion, this is somewhat misguided given that the problem with dairy is the lactose (and possibly casein protein). Butter, by definition, is milk fat... (more)

Is it okay to fry meat/chicken and veggies in butter or is coconut oil a better alternative?

LowerCarb 0 · April 17, 2014 at 5:46 PM

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.
