    What technically non-primal foods do you use anyway?

    Shop Now
    I'm curious - what technically non-primal foods do you use on a regular basis anyway?

    I'm not talking about dark chocolate or red wine which are allowed in moderation on a primal way of eating. I'm more referring to things like vinegars, the occasional dressing or sauce, etc.

    Just curious

    Mayo (though I am getting ready to make my own bacon mayo), sweet chili sauce, blue cheese dressing (also on it's way out, just using blue cheese crumbles now...)

    I drink a few diet sodas a week. I use commercial salad dressings once in a while. I buy my mayo - I've been too lazy to make my own, although now that I got an immersion/stick blender for Christmas, I'm gonna give it a shot. I've used corn starch a few times to thicken things (figuring at least it's not gonna make me feel gross like gluten).

    I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

    Regularly? I guess my only one would be coconut milk. It's organic, but it still has guar gum in it. Kind of annoying but I like it in my coffee. Occasionally store-bought mayo, mostly because I don't use mayo enough to warrent making my own and having it go bad.

    Umm... yeah I guess that's it.

    Regularly I use vinegars, mustards, sherry, and a few drops of worchestershire sauce. Store bought mayo is used occasionally but I usually make it from scratch for salad dressings etc, arrowroot powder VERY occasionally.

    I use a little honey, usually in salad dressings -- maybe 2 tsp weekly.

    I also use soy sauce once a month or so (though I'm looking for coconut aminos to replace it) and worchestershire sauce once every couple weeks.

    I use vinegars frequently -- but since when are they not primal? They're in plenty of recipes on this site.

    A little ranch dressing in salads, I just love it! Someday I might feel like changing, just not ready yet.
