Clean Eating Condiments

BBQ Sauce - FOUND!
  • Check out my latest "I'm-almost-healthy-but-still-kinda-sick-vid" yeah I really need to not be sick anymore     
  • Do an inventory of the products you have at home to see if sugar in its various manifestations is hiding in your home (it's EVERYWHERE!)


  • As part of clean eating, allergen-free eating, detox eating and so on, white sugar is eliminated from the diet
  • So is: brown sugar, demerera sugar, turbinado sugar, raw sugar, cane sugar, evaporated cane sugar, cane sugar juice, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, dextrose, glucose, glucose-fructose, sucrose
  • So are the artificial sweeteners because they are toxin city for the liver and nervous system: aspartame, asculfame-K, asculfame-potassium, neotame, sucralose and so on.  Some of these may no longer be on the market, I can't even keep track of these anymore
  • Sugar alcohols are okay because they're natural, and end in -ol: xylitol, sorbitol, mannitol
  • Natural sweeteners are A-okay as well: maple syrup, maple butter, agave nectar, raw unpasteurized honey, coconut sugar / sap, xylitol, stevia, brown rice syrup, dates and other fruits, and so on but don't go overboard - 3 tablespoons a day max for most women and 4 tablespoons for most men
  • And of course, try switching your condiments for the sugar-free variety:
  • PS - I've yet to find sugar-free BBQ Sauce, I'm working on finding a homemade recipe though! 
  • Edit Wednesday Eve (2 days later): Organicville doesn't only make sugar-free agave ketchup, but ALSO sugar-free agave BBQ sauce!  At Superstore/Loblaws!

  2. Thanks!! The ketchup is a tad more elusive, the rest of them are fairly easy to find at most big-name stores :)
