One thing you get real good at while eating Paleo is label reading. However, there may be somethings we forget or overlook, like spices. The following are a few examples of some seasonings in my pantry from pre-Paleo days. They seem quite unassuming until....you read the labels.
Taco Seasoning: Yellow corn meal, sea salt, chili pepper, onion, garlic, spices ( including cumin, oregano and cilantro), Demarara sugar (unrefined sugar), smoked paprika, red and green bell peppers, cocoa powder, chipotle chili powder, salt and Jalapeno Pepper.
Montreal Steak Seasoning: salt spices ( including black pepper and red pepper), garlic, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural flavor, and extracts of paprika
Sweet Mesquite Seasoning: Sea salt, spices (black pepper, chili pepper, red pepper, oregano), dehydrated vegetables (onion, garlic, red bell pepper), demarara sugar, natural mesquite smoke flavor, citric acid, silicon dioxide.
Lemon and Pepper: salt, black pepper, citric acid, onion, sugar, garlic, calcium stearate, silicon dioxide, and calcium silicate, celery seed, lemon oil, and FD&C yellow 5 lake.
One surprise that I threw away already at Thanksgiving was a thing of pumpkin pie spice. When I opened it, it looked like sugar was in it, so I read the ingredients and low and behold there it was, sugar.
Don't stop reading your labels! You may be ingesting things not knowingly.
