Ketchup Redefined: The healthy way to make your own Ketchup!

Living a healthier lifestyle and maintaining a clean diet isn’t as difficult as it may seem. Some major hang-ups people run into is the misconception that healthy food has to be bland, unseasoned and boring.

That could not be further from the truth.

While traditional sauces and condiments are usually filled with added sugars, artificial ingredients and dangerous chemicals, there are still ways to spice up your meals without it becoming detrimental to your health goals!

The most commonly used condiment is probably ketchup. Unfortunately, I’ve never seen a brand of ketchup without additional sugar added to it, which is obviously something we’d like you to avoid!

Lucky for you, we’ve got a ketchup recipe that is to die for! We first saw this posted on T-Nation.com, then decided to add a little 1 & Only flare! It’s also way healthier than store-bought ketchup and incredibly simple to make. Check out the recipe below.
