Just add almond meal until you get to your desired consistency. I don't have a recipe for meatloaf, as what I put in in changes each time.  1 pound ground beef, 1 egg, black pepper, tomato paste, fish sauce… mix and then add almond... (more)

Coconut oil mostly, avocado oil for high heat cooking point, macadamia nut oil for making paleo mayo, olive oil or occasionally sesame oil for salad dressings.

It's really chewy, and kind of gross, but it is fat... Should I eat it? Am I wasting a good source of fat by chopping off the grizzle on the edge of the meat?

If it is animal, you can eat it. If it is tough, get it into small enough pieces and then do as the Inuit (Stephanson, Fat of the Land) did- roll around in your mouth a few times for flavor and then just swallow it.

I'm no expert, but as far as I've researched, butter, coconut oil and olive oil are the best things to cook with. So you're probably good, as long as there's no secret veg oil in the butter.

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?

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.

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.
