I wish I would have come up with this recipe for Grain Free Breading Mix YEARS ago. It’s really opened up a whole new world of food options I THOUGHT I had said goodbye to. And it’s Paleo friendly! Let’s face it, we all LOVE breaded, fried foods. Don’t deny it. For years we’ve been “told” to avoid them due to the FAT, however now it’s apparent that it’s not the fat itself that’s bad for your health when you fry foods, it’s the TYPE of fats your food that’s fried in! Also – compound those toxic, unhealthy fats with the damaging wheat/gluten breaded foods that there’s a double whammy to your health! I’ve got you covered with my healthy Grain Free Breading Mix, now we’ve just got to make sure you’re using the correct type of fats when you fry your yummy food! Which fats are the HEALTHIEST to fry in??
- Lard (we use it most often)
- Palm Oil
- Coconut Oil
