Who doesn’t love a great BBQ sauce, especially one that’s freshly made out of your own kitchen using real ingredients! This is Dan from Primal4Life bringing you the “Well Fed BBQ Pork & Veggie Paleo Wrap”. Condiments are something most people overlook when eating right…. And I’m talking about just about any type of diet, most people resort to bland meals and that doesn’t have to occur! Tonight’s Paleo dinner gets totally enhanced with Melissa Joulwan’s BBQ Sauce recipe from her book Well Fed 2 with some organic pork, and a couple great veggies in a Turmeric Paleo Wrap!
Starting things off, we took Melissa’s BBQ Sauce recipe and made a minor enhancement with more nutrient dense Paleo products, and it came out uhhmazing! And since it’s made with a bunch of fresh, day to day ingredients, I am more than happy to let this BBQ Sauce in on the dinner fun. Besides the sauce and pork, I’ve decided to grill up some wonderful veggies: golden beets that were flavored up with Garlic Nuco Liquid Premium Coconut oil, some minced garlic, and fresh dill. And, some asparagus, also done in that Garlic Nuco Liquid Premium Coconut oil (it’s that good, trust me!). Meanwhile, it’s going in the ultimate wrap ever; the Turmeric Paleo Wrap from Julian Bakery! It’s made from organic coconut, its low in carbs, low in calories, strong like bull, flexible like a gymnast, and low glycemic. Plus they are made gluten and grain free, they do not have soy or dairy, no starch or salt has been added, and they lack GMO’s too! Talk about the perfect wrap!
Ingredients (for the BBQ Sauce):
- 1 cup water
- 1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
- 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- ¼ cup Coconut Vinegar
- 2 TBSP Coconut Aminos
- 1 TBSP Dijon mustard
- 1 TBSP sunflower seed butter
- 1 tsp hot pepper sauce
- 1 date, pit removed
- 1 TBSP Garlic Nuco Liquid Premium Coconut Oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp chili powder
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- ¼ tsp dry mustard powder
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ground black pepper
- Pinch ground cloves
- Pinch ground allspice
- In a blender or food processor, combine the water, tomato paste, apple sauce, coconut vinegar, coconut aminos, mustard, sunflower seed butter, hot pepper sauce, and date. Puree until smooth.
- Heat the coconut oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic, chili powder, cayenne, dry mustard, cinnamon, black pepper, cloves, and allspice. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
- Pour the tomato mixture into the saucepan, and whisk to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer gently, uncovered, until the sauce thickens, about 20 minutes.
- Enjoy warm or at room temperature. Store covered in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.

Now that you have this incredible BBQ Sauce recipe, you can grill up your organic pork, and smother it with love! Meanwhile, grill up your garlic’ed golden beets and your asparagus, and toss it into an oh-so-yum Turmeric Paleo Wrap! Yes, they are yellow, yes they are scrumptious, yes they hold a ton of food, and yes they are available through www.JulianBakery.com/Paleo ! The same place where you can pick up Well Fed 2, Nuco Liquid Premium Coconut Oils, Coconut Secret Coconut Vinegar and Coconut Aminos and so much more!
This was one heck of a meal, we savored each and every bite, and we wished we had much more room in our bellies. But, since this wrap was loaded with great proteins, healthy fats, gobs of veggies, and some fiber as well, we were totally cool with one lovely Paleo Wrap that we were blessed with. Remember, eating real food just like I described satiates you, and the urges to stuff your face tend to drop off. The cravings for sweets also decrease, just FYI! If you noticed the grill peach and pear in the video and photos that go along with this write-up, those are now super sweet to us. I couldn’t imagine what candy tastes like anymore!
So check out Julian Bakery online or in their Oceanside or La Jolla, California locations. It is the ultimate place to shop and grab a bunch of various Paleo, low carb, or even Vegan items to help you get on track! And remember, the new Turmeric Paleo Wraps are also available in that gnarly 49 pack too! Thanks for checking out this delicious and nutritious Paleo meal, and please stop by again soon for more great recipes!
