Everything tastes better with a little dipping sauce on the side. Unfortunately, a trip down the ketchup and mustard aisle at the grocery store can quickly trigger disappointment. It's not just a little sugar, salt, or unhealthy oils that ruin your favorite condiments. Instead, those are usually the primary ingredients!

The good news is that you can easily bypass store-bought condiments and prepare your own right in the kitchen with very little prep time. These recipes for Paleo-approved ketchup, mustard, and mayo are just a few from Dr. Cordain's cookbook, Real Paleo Fast and Easy. These recipes are our answer to having complete control over what goes into our bodies while adding flavor and fun to our favorite dishes.

Plus, these three recipes are a great jumping-off point for other recipes. Use the ketchup instead of tomato sauce when serving turkey meatloaf, add garlic to the mayo for a spicy aioli dipping sauce, or whisk up the mustard with olive oil and lemon juice for a tasty salad dressing. The possibilities are endless!
