Dressing Things Up

Throughout your life, you have probably found that dressings can help make almost any veggie more palatable. Even the average American on the SAD will choke down a salad if they drown it in enough ranch. However, when you embark on a Whole30, most of those Hidden Canyon brand dressings are off limits to their use of poor quality oils, sugars galore and more additives than you can pronounce.

Of course, we encourage you to make your own dressing, but for some, they find that to be so. much. work. I recently became aware of a brand of dressings that not only have great ingredients, but many of their offerings are Whole9 approved! This company is called Tessamae’s and you will be impressed by the variety they have for sale. You can sort on their website by “Paleo” or “Whole30” to find those that fit your needs.

Personally, I started with two that caught my eye — their hot wing sauce and Matty’s BBQ sauce. For a brief review, the BBQ sauce left me a little disappointed. I found it to have a very heavy balsamic vinegar taste and not much else. However, the hot wing sauce is great (I tried it with chicken).

Take a look at their site and see what might pique your interest. You are able to order on the site or there are also many varieties that are available at Whole Foods.

Happy Birthday Adriana! Enjoy your day!
