In the last several years, I’ve been making a real conscious effort to not buy processed, boxed or bottled foods and drinks. Clean eating isn’t always easy or cheap, but it’s definitely better for you and makes a difference in your diet. And I’m the first to admit that I’m not the “cleanest” eater, but I try my best.
One item in particular I try to make on my own are easy sauces.
Sauces are fun to experiment with, and pretty versatile. A lot of store-bought sauces are loaded with sugars and preservatives and all sorts of not-clean ingredients that wreak havoc on diets. Thus, I’ve been making my own easy sauces at home to use in my cooking whenever I need them. Plus, sauces are pretty fun to make, and this is an easy fix in any diet.
