So I've been struggling to get enough calories lately, and I've been putting coconut oil in my smoothies. The problem is, I don't want to go through a bunch of coconut oil for one use, and I want to get some different fatty acids into my diet.... (more)

Are you paleo or primal? If primal, adding a scoop of full-fat no-sugar greek yogurt can up the calories and is delicious!

A better route would be to eat coconut flesh, whole macadamia nuts or avocados to get a bunch of vitamins and minerals along with the fats. Adding refined oils to your diet drives the nutrient density downward.

I use it a lot for baked goods with almond flour and pan frying fish and chicken. It's delicious! Also great for making your own (cheaper) mac butter: Put mac nuts and mac oil in food processor. Mac nuts don't get quite butter-y enough on their... (more)

The quick answer is "No, it does not really make a difference". A short expansion on why not.. is that mac nut fat is about 80-85% monounsaturated and about 10-15% saturated. With less than 5% room in there for poly, there is very little to... (more)

This is something I've wondered over for a while as I like to peruse the paleo foodie sites for ideas. It seems to me that our ancestors would not have even had the means let alone the patience to separate the fat from the coconut or avocado or... (more)

Good or bad? It's local since I live in Hawaii, smoke point is 387F. I've read to avoid nut oils but macadamia seems to be a "special" nut in the paleo community. What do you guys think? edit: expeller-pressed- ok?

Less PUFAs than Olive oil. A good source of MUFA. It has a more neutral taste than Olive oil, so good for making asian dishes.
