I am/was a condiment queen! As you know, they don’t always jive with clean eating principles. Over the next week, I am going to post 7 DIY condiment recipes that are not only easy to make but healthify some of our fav cabinet fridge friends.
1 – Ketchup
The ketchup industry tried to reinvent their product as a health food by advertising that it contains the antioxidant lycopene. They were hoping we’d ignore the fact that it still usually contains high fructose corn syrup and mysterious “natural” flavoring. Sorry, but we’re not buying that squeeze bottle. Our good, old-fashioned ketchup recipe uses tomato sauce, vinegar, and a little coconut sugar or maple syrup. Want to come up with your own variation? Try adding curry or allspice
Store-bought ketchup can have hidden sugar, salt and preservatives. Making your own from scratch is easy and delicious.
