    Two Simple Questions ...

    Shop Now
    (1) Just noticed my Swisse Ultivite Multivitamin supplement says "contains gluten from oats". I'm trying to be 100% grain free, should I worry about this or is it likely to be so small its irrelevant?

    (2) As part of trying to transition my kids to a healthier primal style diet, today for the first time I tried them on organic sausages. They were a lamb/beef combo certified gluten free. I haven't read too much about sausage on here yet, would you consider these primal friendly?

    Thanks in advance!

    For me, that would make me not take those vitamins, but depends on how far you want to take this lifestyle

    I buy preservative free sausages from my grass fed/hormone free butcher, they are made with actual meat and no fillers, so I am happy for us to eat them.

    I'm keen to go pretty hardcore. Dammit, there's $25 wasted!

    Yep, I got the sausages from the organic butcher made with actual meat and lamb, grass fed etc. Cooked them tonight with four free range grass fed chicken eggs .... tasty!

    Sounds like you are doing awesome
    Sorry about the wasted $$ though, I have recently done the same with toothpastes, and cleaners etc that I had bought a lot of but we are avoiding as many nasties as we can, so they had to go.

    1 - if you want to be 100%, then avoid the vitamins since you know they have gluten

    2 - they sound ok, but I'd be curious if there are other ingredients besides meat and spices. They sound pretty primal though.

    I try to get my micronutrients from food if possible. To this end, I work about 3-6 oz of liver and 2-3 servings of fish into my diet a week. I also eat brazil nuts I've soaked and toasted for selenium. These three foods cover most of the micros I need, and I don't expose myself to huge doses of Vitamin E and A, as found in most multivitamins. Offal's not for everyone, I know, but I love it, so no problems here.

    Good luck! Label-reading and awareness of your nutritional surroundings is half the battle, and it sounds like you've got those down. Yay!

    Thanks! Paleotrack is really helping with the micronutrients, so I might be ok there, but I think the fish oil would be good to ensure higher O3 levels.

    lol, how much gluten do you REALLY think are in those multivitamins? It is probably equivalent to eating a crumb of bread.

    I admit I had this thought too ... but still, if there are better options, it cant hurt to be totally free!
