    Beautiful, Delicious, Sexy FAT

    Primal Fuel
    okay, so after my recent blood panel coming back with increased cholesterol, I'm cutting back on animal fat and replacing it with other fats. What are some of the fats I can replace it with besides avocado, coconut, bacon, and butter? Would cacao butter be a good option? I made a super yummy snack the other day of melted cacao butter, coconut cream concentrate, butter, and unsweetened shredded coconut. I was full and happy for hours. Just wanted to make sure it was one of the "good" fats.
    Ideas on fat sources, please, thanks!

    And that brings up another question! Why can't you heat olive oil? We cook with it all the time and haven't experienced any ill effects. Is it olive oil you can't cook with or EVOO? We use EVOO, but we also have regular olive oil. Is either safe to heat?

    EVOO has a much lower smoke point (oxidation point) than "light" olive oil (non-virgin.. that tart!) You can cook with the "light" stuff ("light" is the designation in the regular store... it just means non-EVOO) because it's smoke point is pretty high. Just don't cook with EVOO because it's smoke point is low.

    Okay, so EVOO for dressings, regular for cooking. Right?

    I'm curious why butter & bacon are okay and other animal fats are not?

    If you don't mind me (us) being nosy, what were the actual results?

    It was my understanding that high cholesterol, or even high LDL cholesterol, in and of itself was not always a bad thing.
