I know beef tallow would be best but I'm going over a non paleo house for my fantasy football draft. He is frying wings and I would like to know which would be better, Vegetable Oil (gross) or Peanut Oil?
I'm in a debate with a coworker about why cooking with butter (ghee) is better than vegetable oil. Now I know that coconut oil is good and olive oil is good for salad but can you guys shed light on why or if butter is better than most oils?
Hey all, With the anti-thyroid activity of components found in Cruciferous Vegetables, I am concerned I may eventually be having some chronic affect on myself if I keep up my current eating habits. Typically I heat a generous serving of... (more)
Everything I've read about it suggests to me that it's not as much as a problem as I had originally feared. I get the impression that the amounts are negligible compared to what it would take to really have an effect, and the effect is countered... (more)
