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)

Which is better? I currently cook with butter and coconut oil, but have read that olive oil contains a greater amount of vitamin E than CO. Should I switch?

For pure fat butter oil/ghee/clarified butter is hands down the best in my opinion as it has fast burning SCFA's, MCFA's, plenty of MUFA, good 3:6 ratio, and then you got vitamins A, D, E, & KOtherwise the fat that comes in offal/meat is likely... (more)

The question is in the title really, i remember reading something & i'm sure the author said mixing butter with extra virgin olive oil protects it under high heat.
