I don't do dairy (even grass-fed, I tested it) cos I cannot digest dairy (not an allergen; I simply ain't got what it takes, same as being Celiac).

I RARELY use bacon because I don't like the idea of too much smoke going into my body (and I eat TONS of smoked fish--love it). Of course, I NEVER use cured! emoticon

I too was bummed to see it, but like others, not surprised.

I use olive oil for all cold items and for drizzling on steamed veggies, and bacon fat or coconut oil for sauteing/roasting. Honestly I use more bacon fat for sauteing because I am not a fan of the flavor of coconut at all ;)

We drink unsweetened almond milk and coconut milk (we switch it up) and indulge in dark chocolate almond milk for our "treats" ;)

We are dairy free due to an allergy, other wise we would use a grass fed organic butter as well. I would try raw butter to see if that was tolerated (many allergic to dairy proteins actually find they can do it raw!) but it is illegal to purchase/sell raw milk products here :/

I was disappointed in that, too.

Coconut oil is great, as is all saturated fat. I use coconut oil, butter, cream, lard, bacon, all of it is good for us when it comes from pasture-fed animals. This Spark article is outdated to say the least.

I usually don't read the weekly spark because I think it is chalked full of conventional wisdom but I was curious as to what they would say even though I had a good idea. And they did not leave me disappointed... well at least to the fact that they thought what i thought they would think.
I would actually like to add more coconut stuff to my pantry. I use coconut milk in my smoothies. I have tried plain coconut water a couple times but I always find it a bit too salty tasting for my liking, but i'm willing to try it more to see if my taste buds change. My fiance really dislikes when i use coconut oil to cook because he can taste the sweet flavor from the oil and hes not used to it. I really need to research more for ways to integrate coconut products into my cooking.

I use coconut oil, bacon fat and butter for cooking. Olive oil is for salads.

Yes, it is! We use coconut oil and milk. And we are currently living in Thailand so we have fresh young coconut everyday. We use it to make smoothies.

Got this in the Weekly Spark email edition. I use Olive Oil for cooking, however, do use coconut milk for baking, sauces, soups and use Almond/Coconut mixed milk for my power smoothies. What is your take on Spark's review of the data? Is Coconut a fat staple in your diet?
