Get Saucey with these Healthy Condiments

Get Saucey with these Healthy Condiments

Condiments.

I am obsessed.

More than obsessed.

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m all about the sauces and connies.

In my mind, less is definitely not more.

More is more.

The more the better.

On one condition… they are healthy.  Because so often they aren’t.

Most condiments we buy today are loaded with sugar, chemicals and crap. Dressings, relishes, jams and sauces can sabotage a relatively healthy meal, and most people have no idea.

 

Take Sweet Chilli sauce for example. Two tablespoons contains 19 grams of sugar. That’s nearly 4 teaspoons of sugar! I can’t even deal.

 

I’ve taken the hard work out of finding taste worthy connies that your buds and bod will love…
