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.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

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!
