View Full Version : Sub for Bragg's
04-11-2008, 08:39 AM
I was wondering what ya'll use as a substitue for the Bragg's Liquid Aminos, or even if there was one. I'm not really sure what it is, but it sounds kind of chemical-ly to me.
I just use some Celtic or other natural sea salt to my liking.
If I have an Asian-inspired dish that oil would work, I use sesame oil with some lemon to help get the Asian flavor.

I'm with Eva all the way. I gave up Braggs tons of years back without missing one day of it.
Eva, for the Asian flavor, are you adding any salt to the sesame oil and lemon juice? Are you using it on the kelp noodles if you have them? My friend does and I think she uses salt in it.
Carol, salt depends on the recipe. Usually I do add salt too (but not a lot since the lemon juice -- or alternatively ACV -- helps with bringing the flavors out of the meal).
And I haven't done the kelp noodles yet! I'd love to try, but that'll have to wait at least a month or so because of all of the OTHER recipes I already want to try.... Funny, I get so much variety on this lifestyle, WAY more than I did when I had the "option" to eat anything and everything, including cooked and eggs, cheese, etc.

"chemically"?? I'm curious. tell me more. we use it quite a bit because the dc are allergic to wheat/gluten so nama shoyu is out. What about tamari? (we occasionally use a wheat free tamari.)
Zaphirah -- Bragg's makes me feel HORRIBLE. I assumed it was raw until I felt how it made me feel the first time I had it. Ick. Nama Shoyu and tamari are the same for me -- both do NOT feel natural to my body and make me feel icky.
Some people may not have the same reaction, but my body definitely rejects them. And there is not ONE food that comes from nature that my body rejects. And I'm fine with sprouts and whathaveyou (although I was gassy a couple weeks ago when I started having a TON of mung bean sprouts, but that has resolved. ;)). It's just certain man-made "raw" products that make me feel the same as I would eating cooked food. :eek:
