Paleo sausage found?

Ever since I started my palaeo diet almost a month ago, I've missed my favourite staple food: sausage. Yesterday, however, I espied a brand at Whole Foods that I hadn't seen before called Taverrite's. Its cover was, to say the least, encouraging, declaring in bold letters that it was gluten free, raised without antibiotics, and without added MSG or nitrites. Still skeptical, I flipped the packet over to examine its ingredients. To my surprise, I was greeted with this brief list:

"Pork, Water, Vinegar, Organic Spices, Organic Paprika, in a natural casing"

So, have I finally found a sausage that I can enjoy guilt-free?

Why are sausages less than optimal? I can get sausages made with intestines, beef, spices and a tiny bit of dextrose (0.5g/kg)... I don't think there's any problem with that...

No he's asking if a particular sausage meets the guidelines for fitting into a paleo diet. Lighten up dude.

I'd eat it. Well no I wouldn't but only because it's not pastured pork (assuming its not). But that's my standard not everyone's. I say get it and enjoy it.

It's a figure of speech -_- What I'm curious about is whether this food is salubrious by palaeo standards or not.

I get organic, gluten free sausage and don't do it often. It's enough for me to sleep at night...

I love chicken apple sausage and eat it a lot with over-easy eggs. Niman Ranch has several good flavors if you run across them.

You're asking permission to not experience guilt?

You should re-examine what diet means to you and how you relate to it and to life.
