Don’t skimp on the sauce!
We guess you’ve been told all your life that it’s the sauce that will make you fat and give you a heart attack, right? Well, the good news is that it has been proven over and over again that fat won’t make you fat and will not clog your arteries, either. There’s no reason to fear natural fat, saturated or otherwise. It’s an old and failed theory that natural fat is anything but a healthy, satiating and great food, full of vital fat-soluble nutrients. Learn more.
So, now that we’ve got that issue out of the way, it’s time to say no to flavorless low-fat products packed with sugar, artificial sweeteners, food colorings and flavors. Stock up your fridge with clean, natural ingredients full of flavor like:
- Dairy: Heavy whipping cream, sour cream, crème fraiche and cream cheese will make the perfect base for a tasty creamy sauce or dip.
- Dairy free: Mayonnaise is a great base for cold dips and dressings. You can easily make it yourself or, if you buy it, we recommend mayo made with avocado oil, or light olive oil. Try to stay away from soybean and canola oil due to their high content of inflammatory omega-6.
A great tip for thickening your sauce or gravy without using flour — add some cream cheese and let it simmer for a couple of minutes until it thickens.
