    Soybean oil in Paleo Brands dinners.

    Dear People Making Paleo Products: Can you lose the soybean oil? | Hunt.Gather.Love.

    Mark had included this in his Link Love this weekend. Soybean oil?

    Soybean oil is cheap. I see it is a part of the mayonnaise in the recipe and there is mayo available without soybean oil.

    But why buy these pre packaged foods? Paleo meals can be whipped up in a jiffy even for a lazy home cook.

    Want convenience then sometimes you have to accept substandard ingredients.

    Yeah but soybean oil is one of the least paleo things there is.

    My convenience food? Eggs. I can cook up eggs faster than any frozen meal, add some vegetables, either in or beside, and it's a perfect meal. I also cook large batches of my own real food and freeze some for those days when there's not time to cook. Pre-packaged "paleo" meals seem (at least in my mind) to run completely contrary to the reason I started this lifestyle in the first place.

    Excellent point.

    Even if I wanted to try frozen prepared meals I couldn't. I don't own a microwave nor do I want or need one!

    And I bet you get gasps of disbelief when you tell most people this. I lived without a microwave for 2 years after my 2 yr-old fried it by starting it with no food in it. It was an adjustment for sure, but we did JUST. FINE. I also did dishes by hand in that house. Ah, the simple life.

    Pre-packaged paleo - now that's the definition of an oxymoron.

    The first thing I often hear when someone comes over is where's your microwave. My response is as always it is at the Salvation Army!

    I didn't like leftovers reheated in it and I never cooked it in. If I went out and bought one I would have no idea what to do with it. Just a waste of space for me.

    For lunch today I had leftover roasted chicken with some skin, spaghetti squash and brussel sprouts. So while the baby sprouts were steaming I heated up a non stick pan, misted it with some EVOO and warmed my chicken and squash. Lunch took about 7 minutes. And I didn't have to listen to the familiar food sounding like it was popping or exploding. Clean up oh about 3 mintues.
