Hey everyone. I eat 2-3 eggs a day and I am just curious why can't I fry them? Everyone says this is bad. I never eat fried foods but I do like fried eggs because the yokes are runny. It don't understand does it kill the nutrients or something? (more)

My experience is most people are against frying because they're anti-fat. There is some debate about whether you should cook the yolks - better, perhaps, to eat yolks raw and cook the whites (is that the right way round? DYOR!) Personally I eat... (more)

The "cheat" portion of eating out at a place like Red Lobster can be the shitty oils that they use to cook food in. For the most part, however, you can stick to healthier options: a quick look at their menu shows grilled pork chops, grilled... (more)

Hi guys! I was wondering about bacon! It's clearly something a lot of people who eat paleo eat! Is there a certain type to eat/not eat?? And presumably it's best to not eat too regularly or is that mainly up to how much you feel is enough?

Nitrate/nitrite-free is a gimmick, don't bother. A little sugar for the cure, completely fine! It's much more important that the actual meat be good quality, rather than focusing excessively on the cure used.

I love this dish and adapt the recipe to make it healthier (no sugar, fry w/coconut oil then add sesame oil once cool) But is it a bad idea to heat the anchovies in coconut oil? I've heard someone (maybe C. Kresser?) say that fish oil quality is... (more)

There's an issue here. Whole foods are not as fragile as processes refined foods. Anchovies are not refined corn oil. The PUFAs are not destroyed because its not subject to anything that resembles the processing used for making corn oil. The same... (more)

I liked deep frying my food, like french fries, fish, tempura and the likes before I went paleo a few months ago. Now I would like to toss out the sunflower oil and start deep frying in lard or maybe coconutoil (lard is cheaper here ;) ). But... (more)

Deep frying is never paleo. Never. At best, one could claim using paleo-safe ingredients makes the dish "paleo-ified" or something. Meh, I'm just a pedant, though. Having said that, I'm also a hypocrite ;-) - I use coconut oil to deep fry some... (more)

Healthy? Unhealthy? Neutral? I just read this http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9035809/Fried-food-heart-risk-a-myth.html#disqus_thread and was curious as to whether or not it changes anybody's mind about anything. (more)

The problem is that it's Spain and the people in the grouping with the lowest amount of fried foods were probably still consuming a significant amount. It's like comparing the sort of crappy to the crappy. As much as I LOVE croquettes, I find it... (more)

So, I have recently tried a number of "breaded" paleo recipes such as fried chicken, fried okra, etc. which use a combination of coconut flour and almond flour as the breading. They all seem to have great flavors, but time and again, my "fried"... (more)

Don't use mixes with coconut flour. It makes things gummy.

Who here has used coconut oil for deep frying I'm thinking of opening that vat of coconut oil from tropical traditions to make wings tonight. What else is good in fried coconut oil that you've made?

I deep fried sweet potatoes in coconut oil, and they were terrific--coconut oil is great for frying, it really holds up well. I did it in a saucepan, but have since purchased a small "Fry Daddy," which I hope to try soon. My stove is pretty iffy... (more)

Most of my cooking as of late has become "meat + butter + pan". I eat plant matter also, but this is the only way I cook my food. How bad is it to eat like this? What health implications are there?

Is that literally your whole diet? There could be some nutritional deficiency issues if meat + butter is your entire diet. And are you sure you are frying? Sauteeing in butter is not frying. You will know if you are frying because you can't really... (more)

Could you possibly have a gluten issue? Beer and/or breaded deep fried whatever would certainly trigger that if it were an issue for you.

I love french fries even though they're extremely NOT paleo. Any thoughts on Duck Fat Fries? The potatoes themselves are not very paleo, but at least you're avoiding the canola oil from standard fries.

Can someone explain why it would be bad to use cornmeal to make a coating for baked or fried fish? Especially if this would help make fish more palatable to family resulting in more fish meals?? No other grains and no seed oils are being consumed. (more)

Corn is bad, cornmeal (treated with caustics for grinding) especially so. That being said, if your family goal is "no gluten" then read your labels. Personally, I've started using coconut flour to make fried chicken nuggets for my 6-year-old.... (more)

The short answer is no. It doesn't matter. I love my cavemen brethren, but they probably weren't the best of cooks. The tools they had were rudimentary. They'd cook most of their food stuffs over an open flame. It probably created a good number of... (more)
