  4. The chips cannot be healthy because you are cooking at high temps with olive oil. You should use coconut oil or grass fed lard.

    • I always wonder about that when recipes specify olive oil. I use olive oil mainly for salad dressing and would use avocado oil or melted coconut oil for this recipe, since they have a higher smoke point. (It’s hard to find grass fed lard here and costs a fortune when you do find it.)

  7. Olive oil is used in Mediterranean cooking with no issues as long as you are using pure olive oil.
    Olive oil is also the best fat to improve genetic expression and reduce inflammation (avocado oil is great too)
    Additionally, we should limit saturated fat to 10% or less of daily caloric intake for optimal health.

    With that said, this recipe works with any type of organic minimally processed fat!
