paleo sauces

Whether you’re new to a low sugar, gluten-free or Paleo diet or been at it for a while, figuring out how to spice up your dishes can be a daunting task. Sometimes we get bored or lazy when prepping food, or we simply just forget about those we loved. So to keep it all in one place, here are some of our favorites that we’ve discovered over the last few years.

These were modified from various cookbooks and online sites to fit our specific needs, so remember to always adjust seasoning to taste and adapt these to suit your needs and tastes as well. I often take them with me when we eat out, so be sure to invest in some good small containers to store individual servings in. Also, remember that these recipes won’t last as long as their store-bought versions since they’re preservative-free and will only last for a few weeks.

Enjoy! paleo sauces

Paleo Mayo

While following a Paleo diet, one of the challenges that you often here is that people get into a bit of a food rut, and start to feel like they’re living “without” all the time. I think an important key to living, and loving, the Paleo diet is to find a way to incorporate some of your old standby’s that make you happy – think comfort foods, but with a healthy twist! And while some of these foods might be reserved fro your cheat day, this Paleo Mayonnaise recipe will allow you to enjoy your old favorites any day of the week (no cheat day reservation required!). 

Thanks to Paleo Effect for this recipe – it’s a common staple in the Paleo Diet and one that’s handy to have around for tuna salad, chicken salad, coleslaw, etc. While I get the recipe section built out I thought it was a good idea to include some basic staples too. Enjoy!
