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?

I use both, coconut oil and/or ghee for cooking and olive oil for dressings & dips. I find coconut oil in a cooked meal is more satisfying than olive oil, but olive oil is more refreshing so goes better with raw veggies like salads, guacamole.... (more)

The problem with most home cooks is that they are afraid to cook with high heat. The Maillard Reaction is what creates caramelization and flavor - even a rare steak needs a decent sear on it to be delicious. If you are afraid of heat, don't cook... (more)

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

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.

when i was on SCD, i used coconut flour mixed with almond flour. i usually didn't bake solely with coconut flour because i can't eat eggs. for some reason, you need more eggs when you bake with coconut flour.

Sounds like you need to mix it into something with loads of flavor, perhaps a fruit smoothie or you could ruin a cup of coffee. I'd probably just eat a spoonful of it and be done with it. Take your medicine approach.

Pre season the meat a few hours ahead with salt, put it closely under a very hot broiler and cook about a total of 7 minutes. I don't add any oils or butter. Hamburgers usually in a pan with some coconut oil to prevent sticking to pan.

Considering that rabbits "taste just like chicken" to a lot of people, you could use anything that's normally paired with chicken. I would personally opt for the ironic carrots to go with it.
