Since Andy and I have started eating better, it has been a struggle to find not just good for you sauces, but delicious sauces that didn’t leave you feeling like you ate tasteless liquid.
I’m here to help! To save you the time and effort of buying and tasting bad sauces, I’m going to tell you my favorites so that you can go on eating well and feeling well!
1. Sir Kensington’s: These guys really know how to make amazing mayos and mustards. I’m talking creamy, tasty, and the best part, they are a 100% Paleo and all natural. Guilt Free! Andy loves the Chipotle Mayo for his Ham and Cheese Sandwiches, and I can’t get enough of the Spicy Brown Mustard in my Tuna Fish. I have also used their Dijon Mustard in recipes, like Southern Style Pork Chops. You can find these sauces at places like Whole Foods and Sprouts, or you can order whole sets online. If making your own mayo isn’t your thing, Sir Kensington may just be your knight in shining armor.
2. TesseMae’s: These are the first Paleo sauces I ever tried. These were the sauces that made me a believer that good for you can be good tasting too. They are made from pure, all natural ingredients that you can actually pronounce. You won’t find preservatives or additives in any of their dressings or sauces. My favorite is the Spicy Southwest Ranch. I put it on everything from chicken wings to salads to marinading our meat. The best part about TesseMae’s is you can find the dressings in Safeway as well as Whole Foods.
3. PaleoChef: I just discovered these sauces and I can’t believe I have been missing them! I had to make a special trip to another town to get them but I knew they would be worth it. Again, made from natural ingredients that you can read and pronounce (which usually means no preservatives or additives), these sauces are delicious. I use them to marinade and as dipping sauces. I used to be addicted to Heinz Ketchup, but it is so unhealthy for your and PaleoChef’s doesn’t have all that extra sugar but still that great taste. Definitely try the Maple Mustard Dressing, it’s my favorite!
4. Annie’s Organic Horseradish Mustard: While I generally do love Annie’s other sauces, her mustards are the only thing you can really classify as Paleo. This mustard is one of my absolute go to’s when it comes to Tuna Salad, Chicken Salad, and even Pot Roast (I’ll post that recipe soon). It has a great kick to it with the horseradish flavor but doesn’t over power. If you are looking for a change in your mustard routine, you should definitely try this one. I usually find mine at Sprouts.
And if you just love to make your own sauces, my friend Rachel introduced me to her amazing Sweet Olive Oil Dressing. It is so wonderful, easy to make, and again, so good for you!
