If you’ve recently switched over to a paleo lifestyle, you know that finding good substitutes for the meals you used to eat can be challenging. For me**, noodles are something I miss – but I’m finding I really like squash or zucchini “noodles” with my favorite spaghetti sauce (and I’m excited to try making noodles with rutabagas! – see recipe #20).*Please note that most of the links on this page are affiliate links.

What do you miss on a paleo diet? Is it alfredo sauce, beef stroganoff, teriyaki, pesto, sour cream, hollandaise sauce, bbq, ranch dressing or cranberry sauce?….
What I love about these Paleo Sauces recipes is that they are so versatile.
I mean, just take BBQ sauce as an example. There are at least 20 different things you can put that sauce on. It takes a plain piece of chicken and turns it in to something finger-lickin’ good.
Or – my favorite is #1 on the list, chimichurri sauce. I can’t tell you how many different things a good chimichurri sauce can go on. It’s delicious on just about every meat and it’s so easy to make. It’s basically herbs, lemon and oil blended together. My husband is in love with it and puts it on all sorts of meats so his very plain diet is actually edible.
