Red Palm Oil Punches Up The Nutrition

Searing the stew meat in Wildly Organic’s Red Palm Oil adds an antioxidant punch to this paleo-friendly stew.

Red palm oil is high in Vitamin A, an essential antioxidant for growth and development, supporting the immune system, and healthy vision. It is a fat-soluble vitamin so consuming it with fat, such as the red palm oil, makes it possible for your body to absorb it.

Red palm oil is also high in oleic acid, another fatty acid rich in antioxidants. It supports the immune system, cardiovascular health, helps reduce inflammation, and can even help brain function (including memory).

Adding this rich source of antioxidants to your diet is easy (not to mention tasty) with Wildly Organic’s sustainably-sourced red palm oil.

Are you concerned about the environmental impact of harvesting red palm oil? Rest assured that Wildly Organic is a trusted, ethical source:

Wildly Organic Red Palm Oil is sustainably sourced, RSPO-certified, and minimally processed to preserve the nutritional qualities of which red palm oil is regarded.

Hearty Paleo Beef and Mushroom Stew… with a secret!

Would you like to know my secret for delectable beef?


Dark, roasted coffee just does something wonderful to red meat.

Additionally, fresh marjoram really makes for an aromatic experience as this stew braises. Lay a few sprigs on top, then pull the stems out after it’s done. The little leaves fall right off; just stir them in before serving.

You can also use dried marjoram if fresh is unavailable, but if you have fresh, please do use it! Fresh herbs make such a huge difference in a recipe.

What cozy soups and stews are bubbling away in your kitchen this winter?
