You can make your own mayonnaise with a mixture of coconut oil and olive oil or bacon fat. You can use any fat, but have part of it as olive oil makes it not harden as much in the refrigerator. Mayonnaise is simply an emulsion of fat with egg... (more)

I've also been using avocado oil for high temps, but recently I've read in paleo cookbooks that it should only be used cold. I'm not sure why.

I can't stand the taste of coconut in everything, but I want to use it. Is deodorized coconut oil okay or should I stick to the virgin form?

If you use coconut oil, stick to the unrefined, extra-virgin variety. "Deodorized" coconut oil is refined coconut oil, and subject to chemical cleaning and bleaching. If you don't like coconut flavor, your best bet is not to use it. :-) (more)

Canola is just as bad as soy, but in unique horribly ways. You should be avoiding all vegetable and seed oils. On a "30 day challenge" I would try to avoid it -- I mean, it's only 30 days, and it's not a big deal to be very strict, right? After... (more)

Coconut cream has more coconut solids in it. It's delicious to eat on its own, but not right for cooking. It melts, but it will make everything taste much more like coconuts than oil will, and it will probably mess with the texture of whatever you... (more)

Rice bran oil is popping up everywhere - is it a thumbs down from the Paleosphere? It is stable at high heat, but I suspect it has the same problems as 'seedy' oils. Avoid at all costs? I submit to the wisdom of the Jedi Masters.

Fats are on a continuum. Rice bran oil is about 33% PUFA, so it's better than something like soybean oil or corn oil but worse than beef tallow or coconut oil.
