Oils instead of Nut Butter?


Could one substitute a serving of coconut oil or red palm oil instead of nut butter on the V-Diet, if one preferred? Would this also balance out the fats in the diet? (I’m not sure what fats need to balanced…).


It could be done. I like coconut oil myself. You lose a bit of carbohydrate when going from nut butters to oils, and that little bit can help with sleep at the end of the day, but if that’s not an issue, just take in the equivalent calories as the nut butter.
