Hi Rachel and welcome to the group.
I use both coconutoil and olive oil a lot plus some pasture butter. They all have different advantages so a mix is proably good.

emoticon Welcome! I am also 'sort of' on the Paleo diet. I have cut out grains, but did add rice to my turkey soup last month. I still eat curried chickpeas once a month because I grew to love them during my two years as a vegetarian and crave them.
I do use some dairy also; I get tired of eggs every day for breakfast and some days have full-fat plain Greek yogurt with berries.
I use both olive and coconut oils.
I'm glad you are finding what works for you.

But I figured I'd join this group anyways! I went GF about a year ago and then learned that I'm lactose intolerant a few months ago. With these two dietary restrictions combined, I'm pretty much on a paleo diet! The one thing that sets me apart is that I eat beans on a regular basis. It's my pain source of protein since I don't eat a lot of meat (I love meat, I do, I just don't cook it very often!). I'm also not big into using any sort of flour (almond flour, coconut flour, etc). I am going to switch to coconut oil, however, when I run out of olive oil. Most of the recipes I cook are from paleo websites since they tend to match what I can and can't eat and I hope that by joining this group, I can learn more about good recipes and whatnot (I LOVE to cook!!).

So I just wanted to say hi!
