Anyone got any suggestions for a fat for cooking that has balanced sat/mono/polys (1/3, 1/3, 1/3) and balanced omegas as well (2:1 omega 6 to 3)?
(or at least something with roughly even mono/sat proportions, and semi-reasonable omega balance, so I can round it out with something else heavier on the omega-3s/polys) .
Butter or coconut oil is too high in that sats, and lacking in the mono's/polys for me personally - and fish oil , well its very balanced but too expensive to cook with, plus hardly ideal to cook with - yuck!
Duck fat......sadly omega 6 to 3 ratio with duckfat is very poor (12:1) :/ (otherwise its close, though low in polys)
We are supposed to get a ratio of 2:1 omega 6 to 3, so thats a little out to be using as a standard staple..
. . .
Would be just great to get a perfectly balanced fat for regular intake...(specially if I am to reach the target of it being 45-55 of my caloric intake)
I am not worried about saturated fat being dangerous or whatever, I am just trying to emulate the proportions of different fats in wild animals, which to me makes sense...
Also what are thoughts on flaxseed oil? Healthy or not? And why?
Its got high polys, and high omega 3:6 ratio (4:1), and could be used to even something out (like a meat fat) that was mostly mono's and saturateds, and unbalanced omega wise...
Would seem like using that with mixed with goose fat, butter or beef tallow might be roughly right...maybe a little low in the monos (maybe could add in some olive oil lol)
I hope I dont need to blend too many fats or oils to get something with a similar portion of sats/monos and polys and omegas to wild meat!!
Also would make most sense if the fat was primarily meat based (seeing as thats what I am trying to emulate, and a broad spectrum of fatty acids would seem most healthful). Just dont like the idea of using plant oils, and plus, I do want a broad spectrum of fatty acids, meats tend to be broad, plants thin...
This is a perplexing problem, emulating the fat profile of wild game (of course I will try and eat more wild game!)...any help will be hugely appreciated....
I just want the fat I am piling in, to be balanced like most wild game.....
Calling all nutritional paleo experts!
(I know these arent all paleo foods per se, but its paleo matched nutrition I am after)
I want to know how to up my fat intake, without using proportion unbalanced stuff like beef tallow, or butter, or coconut oil (all mainly sat fats), or more balanced fats like duck or chicken fat that have excess omega 6s -
I want my profile to be roughly like wild animals profile (1/3, 1/3, 1/3), and still be well up from the only 35% or so fat I am managing to get in so far even with a fair few fatty cuts (my diet is far too protein heavy IMO, i want to reach 45-55^ caloric intake of fat).
Id prefer not to add anything processed if possible. Any ideas or suggestions welcome..
