One of the rules of paleo dieting is that you have to eliminate processed oils from your diet, with the exception of coconut oil because coconut oil can be derived naturally. This can making cooking on the paleo dieting a little challenging, since you have to get creative with other fatty sources. A few paleo cookbooks will give you recipes for rendering your own fat from animals, but I found this cool blog which has a breakdown of how he rendered goose fat. 

 

If you’ve ever seen your grandma cook with bacon grease, cooking with rendered animal fats is pretty much the same idea. You just cook the animal for your meal, and save the grease for later on. My mom always stored bacon grease in a coffee can in the freezer. It solidifies at room temp, so whenever you need to grease a pan, you just scrape off a little of the lard and smear it on the pan.
