- Do you use extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) regularly?
- Which "paleo" fats do you think are overused in our community, and why? Travis Culp has shown his hand already: butter/cream. I have my suspicions about regular bacon fat use (gasp!).
Some use olive oil because it tastes good and is moderately low in omega 6. Plus it is available most everywhere. And it's much cheaper than liquid gold (macadamia nut oil).
Some don't use it because it's moderately high in omega-6, or they use other more animal-y fats instead.
Some have smoke point concerns and only use it on salad (although I don't believe that pan-sauteeing reaches most EVOO brand's smoke points). Others don't like oils at all, whether cold pressed or not. I personally don't have any at home, but will gladly eat some when going out.
