Is wild caught salmon better than farmed?
Farmed salmon is a modern phenomenon in which salmon are grown at unnaturally high rates to meet increased demand from our ever-growing population.
However, farming fish introduces toxins, antibiotics, contaminants and artificial colourings to the food chain - not to mention keeping the fish in cramped conditions with limited natural movement.
Wild caught salmon is a little more expensive but will pay dividends in flavour and quality. It is also the ethical choice, allowing fish to swim free and enjoy a natural diet.

Why should I use 100% olive oil mayonnaise?
Store-bought mayonnaise often utilises refined veg and seed oils as they are much cheaper than unrefined, grain-free oils. Again, this is usually a case of low price, low quality.
As oil is the main ingredient in mayonnaise. choosing one which is made with refined veg or seed oils introduces a high amount of these inflammatory oils to the diet. Not only are they not Paleo friendly, but they are also harmful to health, with the high-heat processing methods used to derive them disrupting our Omega-3-6 ratio and contributing to chronic disease.
