Hold the Mayo and the Ketchup | The Paleo DietHold the Mayo and the Ketchup Excerpt

Ubiquitous condiments found in the American cuisine like mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup and salsa are definitely not Paleo in the way that they are commercially manufactured. In my childhood, teen, and early adult years I grew up consuming these condiments on a regular basis (except salsa, because it wasn’t widely available in the ‘60s and ‘70s) as did most of you before you adopted a Paleo Diet. These foods add flavor and texture to nearly all fast foods. Can you imagine a hot dog without mustard? How about a hamburger without mayo, mustard, or ketchup? French
fries without ketchup? Or tortilla chips without salsa? What about a tuna fish sandwich without mayo and relish? You get my point.

Almost all fast foods are prepared with these common condiments, and herein lies part of the problem. Because virtually all condiments are currently manufactured with some combination of salt, refined sugars, refined vegetable oils, trans fats, preservatives and additives, they are unquestionably not on the Paleo menu.
