Coconut cream can be found in many stores. Asian markets or Trader Joe’s are guaranteed carriers. Coconut cream is frequently used in paleo sweets.
Palm shortening is mentioned in many recipes in the “Against All Grain” book.
Coconut Oil (great for any kind of paleo cooking or baking)
Ghee can be found in the refrigerated section and also the baking aisle Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have ghee.
Tamari is NOT paleo, but is better than regular soy sauce that contains gluten. Some use Coconut Aminos (found in the soy sauce aisle). These packets are invaluable if you’re going out to dinner. Throw some in your pockets for a sashimi outing.
Tamari is NOT paleo, but is better than regular soy sauce that contains gluten. Some use Coconut Aminos (found in the soy sauce aisle). In general, any soy item should be avoided, so use only occasionally.
Almond milk. Also found at Target. READ THE LABELS! Make sure there aren’t a lot of other added ingredients.
Always get uncured items for bacon or sausage to avoid added nitrates.
This is the kind of sausage you should get for items such as the Sweet Potato hash that call for pork sausage. You can season your own ground sausage if you have time, but that is not always possible.
In the baking aisle (some Whole Foods have it as a self serve item in the baking aisle). Used as a thickening agent in lieu of cornstarch.
This Almond Meal/Flour isn’t as fine as some recipes call for, but will always be acceptable. I had to order actual Almond Flour online. This will often be used in baking.
Always buy GRADE B! It is not processed as Grade A is. Also found at Trader Joe’s.
Make sure to buy raw with no added ingredients. It is not cheap, so use it wisely.
This one is a bit controversial, so do your homework and then decide if it’s for you. See the note above about finding it in asian markets.
Found! The ever elusive Coconut Aminos! I don’t love it with sashimi, but I think it work in asian sauces.
