Paleo Cooking Oils

What is considered a paleo diet cooking oil ? It's all quite confusing since we are now told that oils are not made to take the heat ! For example, olive oil is good for you but NOT to cook. It is to use RAW.

So, what to put in your frying pan? These are your paleo guidelines in a nutshell : only buy organic, unrefined, cold-processed oils. Ghee, butter, and other animal fats should come from pasture-raised, grass fed animals only.

Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is less sensitive to heat than other oils witch makes it the perfect cooking oil. It's delicious and we should all be eating this by the spoon.

Some brands taste better than others. I have tried one that was plane awful so I ended up putting it in my daughter's hair. It's a fabulous hair treatment also.

It's good for so many things, my world went upside down when I tried it in coffee...

Grassfed Butter

Grassfed Butter

Any butter will do for cooking, but pastured butter (from grass fed cows) is the best. Butter is suitable for low-temperature cooking and baking.

The 2 most common brands are Kerrygold and Anchor

(butter is a dairy product and Paleo technically doesn't allow dairy, that's why you should stick to the grass feed butter if you are going to include dairy.That being said, regular butter is way better for frying than all those other "cooking" oils...

Rendered Duck Fat

Rendered Duck Fat - fully-cooked. A beautiful fat with no smell. Looks creamy but melts to clear. Can be very hard to find in the USA. (see here) Store in a cool dry place & avoid direct sunlight

Leaf Lard

Made from the fat around a pig’s kidneys. Lard in the grocery store is usually disgusting. Look for the good one in your local farmer's market or small butcher shop. It must have these two qualities : refrigerated and non-hydrogenated
