Hi Paleo Hacks! My partner has MS and we have been following paleo for the past 8 months with amazing results. We are dairy-free and we eat nuts and eggs but for the most part we try to follow the autoimmune protocol. I am thinking of eliminating egg whites (use only yolks) and trying to reduce the amount of nut flour baked products.
Here are my two big questions.
GRASS FED BUTTER VS SPREAD THAT IS DAIRY FREE? We use grass fed ghee, lard, coconut oil and macademia nut oil exclusively. She really misses butter and loves to buy the Earth Balance Soy Free Butter Spread. I want to cut this out of our diet because of the ingredients (see below) but IT IS dairy free. She wants some kind of butter sub and ghee does not cut it. Would grass fed butter be preferable to what is listed below? I cant tell the lesser of the two evils.
Here is the full ingredient list of the Soy-Free Buttery Spread:
Expeller-pressed natural oil blend (palm fruit, canola, safflower and olive), water, contains less than 2% salt, sunflower lecithin, pea protein, natural flavor (derived from corn: no msg, no alcohol, no gluten), lactic acid (non-dairy source), naturally extracted annatto for color.
BREAD SUB THAT IS LOW IN OMEGA-6? Next question is about bread sub. She is a teacher and absolutely insists on a sandwich for lunch since she only gets like 8 minutes to eat lunch at school.
I have been making almond bread every week but really worry about the omega 6 content of eating it every day. I am considering making bread with either sweet potatoe flour, macadamia nut flour (exp$$$) or tapioca flour. Any thoughts on what the best choice would be for my lovely art teacher who INSISTS on eating a sandwich at lunch time?
Thank you so much in advance. I have learned a TON from this board.
