Better Food of the Week: Coconut Aminos

Brian and I love Asian food. Sushi, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, we love it all. Unfortunately, American-Asian is highly processed and can contain many harmful additives. In particular, soybeans when commercially processed and unfermented can be very harmful. Did you read about this guy who downed a quart of soy sauce on a dare and nearly died? Obviously we would never consume soy sauce in this much excess, but still... yikes!

As a soy sauce replacement, we like to use coconut aminos. You can find it at Whole Foods or Asian markets, and it's a surprisingly delicious, soy-free seasoning sauce. It is made from coconut "sap" and offers 17 naturally occurring amino acids.

I'm anxious to try Nom Nom Paleo's Asian Ground Beef! Her Asian dishes are usually made with red boat fish sauce, coconut aminos and apple cider vinegar. Delicious! Looking to hit some of this up for Whole30

Here is our coconut aminos product of choice!
