Can you tolerate any liver? Chicken liver? Might be good to try that and any other offal since you aren't tolerating any veggies. The offal can provide some of the vitamins you would get from fruits and veggies.

It is recommended to limit the saturated fats amount to less than 7 percent of total daily calories. That is in 2000 calories not more then 140 of them should be directly from saturated fats, which count up to 16 grams. Eating nuts and fish... (more)

Cravings really don't mean anything. There's a whole bunch of pseudo-scientific ideas around the ideas that cravings indicate nutritional deficiencies, not supported by real science though.

What oil or fats would you recommend for dressings, mashed potatoes, and sauces to someone who cannot have coconut oil or any dairy (including ghee)? Avocado oil? Inexpensive (or about the same price as coconut oil or ghee) is a big plus.

Olive oil for everything. It's good for cooking, don't believe those who say otherwise. Of course, you have to like the flavor of it, which may be a challenge.
