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.

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.

It sounds alright to me. As long as you are getting enough calories it ought to be fine. In some sense you can claim to be more paleo than most of us, because these fats are processed in the sense that they are extracted from a whole food.
