As a rule for my clients, I advise avoiding sugar (except for the occasional treat).. Unfortunately, sugar has a way of sneaking in when you least expect it. If you have been reading labels (and I hope you have – if not START NOW!) you might have noticed that most mayonnaise products contain a sweetener – even the organic ones. You’d be hard pressed to find one that doesn’t contain sugar, corn syrup, honey, rice syrup or some other type of sweetener. There are loads of recipes out there to make your own. But, as the queen of healthy convenience I was delighted to find a packaged mayonnaise with a good flavor that does not contain sugar. It’s made by Primal Kitchen (no I was not paid to make this plug). They make a plain and chipotle flavor (my favorite). I found mine at Whole Foods but you can also buy online.
My favorites uses are in leftover salmon, canned tuna (look for wild caught packaged in BPA-free cans or glass) and for chicken salad that I make with the left-over chicken from my chicken stock or bone broth.
I’m still seeking a great sweetener-free ketchup so, let me know in the comments if you’ve found one!
