Food Sourcing

Here at Paleo On The Go we care about the quality of the products we use and know it is important to you as well. Quality products are at the heart of the Paleo lifestyle and vital for our health.

It is our goal to be transparent and share as much information with you as possible about our products. We are always looking to improve the quality of our products. We will continue to update this section with any changes.

Healthy protein comes from healthy animals. This means the animals are fed their traditional diets so they do not become sick and need antibiotics. Here at POTG, we take this very seriously and strive to use only proteins from companies that share our philosophy. We are currently sourcing from these quality providers:

Otto's Naturals

Cassava flour

Otto's Cassava Flour is unlike anything your kitchen has ever experienced. It is an all-natural, amazing, grain-free replacement for wheat flour and can be used as a 1:1 substitute in countless recipes. There are no fillers. Only 100% Yuca (Cassava) and water are used to create this single-ingredient wonder. Foods made with Otto's Cassava Flour do not have that familiar dry or "alternative flour" taste or texture that often comes with gluten-free flours. In fact, many users comment that baked goods made with Otto's are indistinguishable from their wheat based counterparts in taste and texture.

Cooking Oils:

We do no use ANY highly processed vegetable oil, industrial seed oils, or any oils that are easily damaged by high heat. We use stable cooking oils that are minimally processed.

When fats are damaged they release free radicals that are dangerous to the body. Vegetable oils and other polyunsaturated oils become rancid when processed and heated at a high temperature. We use traditional, stable cooking oils to reduce exposure to free radicals.

Our cooking oils:
  • Olive Oil
  • Organic, unrefined, cold pressed coconut oil
  • Grass-fed, organic Ghee from OMGhee http://omghee.com/
  • Rendered fat from quality animals (lard, tallow, bacon grease)

How We Buy Our Produce:

Due to availability and with your budget in mind, we source our produce following the Dirty Dozen/Clean Fifteen list from the Environmental Working Group. This means that we make sure we buy items on the “Dirty Dozen” organic and buy conventional if necessary only from the “Clean Fifteen” list. http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/


Other Products We Use:

Red Boat Fish Sauce- all-natural, first press, “extra virgin” Vietnamese fish sauce. It does not contain added water, preservatives or MSG. Made from a two hundred year-old, chemical free, artisanal process.

Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos- a great soy alternative made with certified organic Coconut sap-naturally aged and blended with sun dried, mineral-rich sea salt.

Sea Salt- sea salt includes other trace minerals besides just sodium that are vital for your health. Table salt is pure sodium chloride (along with added iodine) while sea salt contains all the electrolytes: sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Culinarily speaking, it also tastes better and you don't need to use as much.

Salmon:

In our quest to find the highest quality products, we do not always find exactly what we want. We've been looking for a sustainable and available source of wild caught salmon at a reasonable price to no avail. Until we can find a good source for wild salmon (most likely only in summer months), we've chosen to use the next best alternative we can find, which is farmed raised Scottish Salmon. They follow a specific Code of Good Practice for Scottish Finfish Aquaculture that goes above and beyond basic regulatory practices. We haven't seen their practices first hand, but from our research, it appears they're working to improve the health of their farmed fish and to mimic a the wild diet of salmon while allowing them room to swim.

Any fish on our menu that is WILD will say WILD in the description. The Scottish Salmon is NOT wild. It is, however, a step above the traditional farmed raised fish.

We are cooking limited amounts of this salmon, as we want to offer wild caught salmon when it becomes available.
