HORRAY! PRIMAL KITCHEN HAS MADE IT TO CALGARY

I'm a bit late it sharing this news, so I apologize for that.  I don't often promote or endorse a product unless I know it strictly complies to a gut-healthy diet, and the quality is good.

Primal Kitchen mayonnaise has long been a favourite of mine.  It is the only mayo on the market that I know of that is 100% grain free (using a non-grain derived vinegar), and it uses only avocado oil (a healthy fat).  Additionally it is sugar free, soy and canola free and dairy free.  Every time my husband would travel to the States for business, I would ask him to pick up several jars of Primal Kitchen mayonnaise to bring back, but now he doesn't need to do that anymore!  Prior to discovering it, I made my own mayo at home, which was amazing too, but it takes time to make, and I didn't always have the time.  Sound familiar?

For the last couple of months Primal Kitchen mayonnaise and salad dressings have been in most of the health food stores in Calgary, so next time you are shopping have a look to see if it's on the shelf of your local store.

If you don't tolerate eggs, then these products aren't suitable for you.  But if you do, go out and grab some!  Dip grilled shrimp into it, mix it with cultured pickles (like Bubbies brand) for a quick tartar sauce to go with fish,  add some garlic to it for a mouth watering aioli, spread it over your bunless burger, or use it in salad dressings.  

 The salad dressings have some thickening agents in them like tapioca starch and cream of tartar, so these won't be suitable for everyone, especially if you are in the early stages of your gut-health recovery.

On a similar note, I continue to be an advocate for you in getting more gut-healthy products on store shelves.  I communicate with local businesses about the need for these products, but change is happening slowly, so I'm starting to explore other options.

I recently placed my first order with Vitacost in the States.  There are some great products available in the States that haven't made their way into the Canadian market yet, but Vitacost will ship to Canada, and it's free over $100.  My order is on its way, and will be here very soon.  I've ordered a variety of grab-and-go items that fit a Paleo, gut-healthy lifestyle.  I'll be sharing these items with you on Facebook as I try out each one.  If you aren't already following me on Facebook, but want to find out about the foods I'll be trying, just click on the link.

What condiments do you miss, or not have time to make?  Ketchup? BBQ sauce?
Add Primal Kitchen mayo to your shopping list!

Happy, Healthy Eating!
