I have long been a fan of Mark Sisson and his Daily Apple site. His avocado oil mayo is my favorite. And now Iíve tried his Golden BBQ sauce.

My yum.

Panfried a pound of ground pork, topped with sauce, topped with low carb coleslaw. The mustardy vinegar quality of the sauce hit that sweet & sour angle just right. And so easy, too; which is exactly what I need right now.

I got it in a 3 pack with classic BBQ and steak sauce. Will report further.

And it looks like OMAD because I ate the whole thing for late breakfast. A keeper.

I find the avocado oil mayo is pretty salty to my taste, but I'm willing to work around that to avoid the soybean oil in other brands. I can't make my own, it never turns out and ends up wasting so much olive oil.

I do love the salad dressings. The Thousand Island doesn't taste like Thousand Island to me, but is really good. The Green Godess too.

I haven't tried the other products yet. I still have plenty of G. Hughes BBQ sauce to use up first.

I did notice that one has to make sure to read the labels as some do have honey/carbs in them.

I did try the cocktail sauce, but it just didn't work. It was good, but it wasn't cocktail sauce

Made a fine BBQ type sauce on pork, though.

I was just about to start a thread to ask about avocado mayo. Have either of you tried Sir Kensington's? I tried it and disliked it. It had this weird bite to it... maybe Dijon mustard, but I'm not sure. How does Primal Kitchen compare? I'd be willing to shell out for PK, as long as it doesn't taste like SK's. I've never tried plain avocado oil, but with avocados being pretty bland, I can't imagine it having a 'bite' to it.

I looked up the ingredients for Sir Kensington's. The stuff in bold is why I didn't buy it. The stuff in italics is why you don't like it

Quote:
Sunflower Oil, Certified Humane Free Range Egg Yolks, Water, Organic Lemon Juice, Distilled Vinegar, Salt, Fair Trade Organic Cane Sugar, Mustard Flour, Black Pepper, Citric Acid


To me the Primal Kitchen mayo tasted like mayo. And I was a Hellman's fan.

I actually like the Sir Kensington Avocado oil mayo. I like the Choice Foods brand also. I tried the Primal Foods brand and I totally LOATHED it. I hate to waste food but after my first try it went right into the trash. The texture was really creepy. Sadly nothing compares to my beloved Duke's but Sir Kensington is the one I can handle best.

Primal Kitchen now has frozen meals! Very pricey, so I did not buy ($7.50 for what seemed like a very light box. The chicken pesto ingredients looked fine. I didn't examine the chicken curry, but nothing alarming on the front of the box. The beef barley says it all in the title, so I did not even pick up the box.

I typically don't do frozen dinners, no matter how low carb friendly, because I don't find them filling. However, I always look because they would make a good emergency quick meal.

Doh! I thought I looked and it was a mix of oils in the health food store.

In any case, I am very careful in the health food store, as they lean vegan which means tons of added SUGAR.

Which isn't healthy, but there you go.

Honestly, everyone's tastebuds vary so much it doesn't matter who likes it. It only matters if WE like it.

The PK ketchup is a godsend. Now I've got to see which is cheaper - Amazon or Whole Foods lol. Going to try the marinara sauce(s) next.

I just ordered some Primal Kitchen ketchup from amazon! Yeah it was cheaper from Whole Foods but I havenít been inside a store since early March and only get curbside pickup, and Whole Foods doesnít offer curbside pickup. Only in-store shopping or delivery. Well as I said I donít go inside stores these days. I did get a Whole Foods delivery once which requires a minimum $35 order, and between the delivery fee and the tip for the deliverer it ended up being more expensive than amazon. So this time I just bit the bullet and ordered from amazon.

It was Prime and would be delivered tomorrow but after I submitted the Buy Now button it said it would arrive on Nov. 2.

I sometimes get amazon orders the same day (if I order early) or next day as there are two amazon fullfillment centers within about 30 minutes of my house, but I guess this ketchup is not stocked there 😉.

The trick will be to see if the grandkids will like it since they use more ketchup than I actually do.

Whole Foods was one of the first places I restarted in store shopping, especially when they instituted opening 1 hour early for seniors only.

For the ketchup, Amazon is two for $6.89, Whole Foods sells one for $5.99. Marinara on Amazon is $8.58 for one, Whole Foods $8.99.

A little savings I guess.

Well my Primal Kitchen ketchup arrived and I had some with my breakfast yesterday. It was great! Just what I've always wanted in a ketchup. No sugar, no sweeteners.
