An easy breakfast for me to make at work is to just make a few eggs and some sausage. But, I'm wondering, as far as Paleo/Whole 30 compliance goes, what is the best brand to get? Nitrate free? I've been getting a Trader Joe brand, but is there something better out there? Thanks!!! I love this website.. best support group ever!!
The best is from local, humanely-raised pork. All of this worrying about minuscule amounts of added sugar and nitrites/nitrates (found in much larger amounts in saliva) is pointless.
You can find a number of choices at Whole Foods, like Wellshire Farms and Applegate farms. The Turkey-sage flavor from Applegate has no sugars. They are frozen so you may have missed them but many supermarkets carry this brand.
If you're in the Seattle area, Iserno's is a great nitrate/nitrite/preservative/sugar-free brand. It runs from $5-7/lb depending on where you go. Trader Joe's is the cheapest, QFC/Kroger is the most expensive.
If you find something, please let me know. I've searched several grocery stores and every brand of sausage I have found contains sugar - which is not allowed on the Whole30. I'd make sure even your Trader Joe's brand is sugar free.
I am on day 24 of my Whole30 and unfortunatley, i've had to give up the sausage for exactly this reason. Hoping it's going to taste that much better when I get to add it back into my diet in moderation!
