    allergic to coconut--what to cook with?

    We are just starting into this journey, and one of my kids is allergic to coconut. What can we use for medium to high heat cooking, instead of coconut oil?

    Thanks

    Goose fat ... lovely stuff. Straight from the fridge, it's damn tasty on a teaspoon! Kinda like a fat sorbet.

    High smoke point, perfect for frying and for roasting.

    Derpamix does not follow a paleo or primal lifestyle, so take his advice with a grain of salt.

    Preferably bacon salt.

    Yup. If you can get lard from a local farmer that treats his critters right, definitely do it. Even when I was little (y'know... like 25 years before I went primal), my mom scrambled our eggs in bacon grease. It's delicious.

    You can use olive oil and avocado oil as well.

    Don't fry with olive oil, however!

    Lard! DUCK FAT! Beef tallow!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
