    Diet with medical conditions... What to eat?

    So my sister is not well, and with the conditions she has Starch and Fructose are poison to her.

    Trying to figure out what to recommend for her to eat, especially fat sources.
    Coconut oil doesn't work(she was in considerable distress the last time we tried that). Right now my list is at butter... and that is it.

    Thoughts on what she could eat?

    Not sure about the rest of her diet but I would focus on real, natural unprocessed foods. Bone broth comes to mind as well.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    see if you can find good sources for tallow or lard. buy/make ghee. incorporate fattier fish like salmon, herring and mackerel.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    I've been doing rendering recently... Have goose fat, chicken fat, and duck fat... All of those should work, I am thinking.

    Regarding the safe list above, she has fructose intolerance, not fructose malabsorbtion, so some of those are not suitable. It gave me a good jumping off point, however. Thank you.


    Edit: can anyone recommend a good way of cutting up the chicken skin before rendering? Tried partially freezing so I can cut it in strips, and even that gets painful if you try and do it in any quantity... Food processor doesn't work because the skin is too elastic and just catches the blade and then spins.

    That is what I am using now... was hoping for something a bit more efficient... (Picked up 10lbs of chicken skin... don't need to make all 10lbs right now for the fat, but there is never enough of the fried chicken skin. )

    Would it work better if you put them in the processor partially or fully frozen? I've done that with beef tallow to keep it from gumming up and turning to a paste.

    I will try it tonight and let you know.
    I really don't want it turning to paste either, because the fried skin at the end is the best part.
