Is Horseradish Paleo?


Eat Your Vegetables

Horseradish is a root vegetable, and there are plenty of reasons for us to eat our vegetables. They tend to come loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Horseradish comes from the brassicaceae family (along with broccoli, cabbage, and wasabi) and is especially high in sulfur. Sulfur doesn’t get a lot of attention in the media, but it’s an essential nutrient that we need for hormone synthesis, among other things.

A Paleo-Friendly Condiment

Horseradish has such a strong flavor that it is usually used as a condiment, rather than eaten on its own. If you ever eat the wasabi your favorite sushi restaurant provides, you’re probably eating horseradish instead of true wasabi. No need to worry though, as horseradish is a perfectly Paleo-friendly substitute for wasabi.

Always Avoid Store-Bought

You can always buy horseradish in bottles or jars at your local grocery store, but those likely have rancid vegetable oil added. If you really miss it, trying making your own.
