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)

In our small city in the desert, Red Lobster is where a lot of friends want to go for something different than the typical steak/Mexican food joint and it is always a birthday or something that I can't decline. I discovered that I do best if I... (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?

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)

I have the same question and glad to find this post - I bought some "crunchy anchovies" from an asian market. Definitely a snack food (omelette and salad topping too), but listed with high protein, relatively low carbs, basic ingredients. They... (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)

Honestly, I don't think it's that serious. Just have a cheat day where you can indulge (not too much) a little bit. If you know your caloric count for your body/weight then don't go over that by a lot. If you're working out a lot anyways most... (more)

It depends on the oils. The deep fryers used in commercial restaurants don't work with vegetable oils (I believe peanut oil is the one exception). If you are eating fried foods from a restaurant, it almost surely has been cooked in hydrogenated... (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?

We shall see, Kasra. Are you pretty much eating only meat and butter? Should be interesting. I don't think you're automatically doomed to an early grave. A bit of variety might not be a bad idea, though.

Roasting ducks throw off an enormous quantity of fat. If you got into duck between now and Thanksgiving, you would certainly be able to reserve enough fat yourself to fry a turkey in. Other than that, I'd consult your butcher. I know that... (more)

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.

If I had the chance to eat duck-fat fries I wouldn't be asking about them on the internet, I would probably be shoveling them into my mouth with both hands. There's nothing wrong at all with potatoes, although apparently you may want to avoid... (more)

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)

I prefer almond flour as well. Coconut flour doesn't seem to get crispy enough, while the almond flour crisps up nicely.
