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!

I know everybody LOVES coconut oil (as do I and use it as my main oil for cooking, etc), but would it be beneficial to my HEALTH to add in MacNut and Avocado oil as well? I found a good MacNut Oil on Amazon in case anyone is interested:... (more)

I just bought myself some macadamia oil since my taste buds wanted a change from the coconut-y taste of coconut oil. I'm wondering if any one knows of anything that tastes superb with macadamia oil. Has any one tried cooking eggs with it; I... (more)

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)

In terms of boosting HDL cholesterol and protecting the heart, are there any differences between raw macadamias and roasted? Are the monounsaturated fats damaged by the roasting process? Also, macadamia's contain saturated fats - anyone know... (more)

Well, among nuts, macadamias are the lowest in omega-6's which makes them pretty heart healthy. As far as roasting them it depends on how they are roasted. In oil, then not so good. They can be dry roasted so the nutritional effect would... (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)
