I am looking to make a meat loaf recipe that calls for ~1/2 cup crushed soda crackers as filler. I'm thinking of using a seasoned almond flour "breadcrumb" mixture in place of the soda crackers, but I am not sure of the ratio to use. Since this is... (more)

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.

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?

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.

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.
