BBQ Sauce is a popular condiment on many foods and snacks, but is it safe to eat on Paleo?
Yes and No – it depends on the recipe and sauce!
Why is BBQ Sauce OK on Paleo?
If your BBQ Sauce is homemade using all natural ingredients from the vegetable section is it probably OK to eat on Paleo. The more preservatives and addititves you add to the sauce the less Paleo friendly the sauce becomes. Luckily, the best sauce recipes only need a few ingredients to taste great.
Why is BBQ Sauce NOT Paleo?
BBQ Sauces that are made with preservatives and unhealthy sugars are NOT OK to eat on Paleo. Bottles found in the condiment section of the grocery store tend to not be part of the diet. Instead we recommend looking up a Paleo friendly recipe before heading to the grovery store.
Our Final Say
BBQ is fun to cook at home and is a sure-fire way to know your sauce is Paleo safe. There are countless recipes available online and they all taste better than a bottle from the store.
