OK, so I realize a lot of folks here do eat plenty of grass-fed dairy, especially butter. But a lot of high-profile paleos seem to really use a lot of coconut milk and coconut oil. I understand there is plenty of evidence that these foods have benefits, but could we be taking it a bit too far? Dr. Harris has made the argument that grass-fed butter should be preferred over coconut products, mostly because of the fatty acid balance, if I remember correctly.
Butter, even grass-fed butter, is significantly cheaper than coconut oil, and tastes better IMO. I still consume coconut oil and coconut milk, but they are not my primary fat sources.
For people with dairy issues, making ghee pretty much takes care of that, from what I have heard. Of course, there's always grass-fed tallow, which should be even cheaper, if you can find it.
On a similar note, I've seen a few people recommending frequent consumption of nuts as a snack, including to those with carb cravings. This seems misplaced also; nuts are high in O-6's and lectins. This advice seems to lead some folks to eating lots of "paleo muffins" made with nut flour, etc. I'd say have a nice sweet potato and butter and cinnamon- sweet, delicious, cheap, way easier, and almost certainly healthier.
I realize some people have issues with carbs, so this advice shouldn't apply to everyone, I suppose. Still, I think some kind of paleo puritanism, combined with residual carb-phobia, is leading to some bad recommendations.
