Get your mind outta the gutter....I wasn't gonna say shake.....geesh....
Sooooo.....I know it doesn't look like it.....but....it's ketchup.......real homemade ketchup....and....it's tasty!! Real tasty!! I know I've been mentioning that the hubs and I are eating healthy now. For the last almost 4 weeks now, yeah us!! The hubs is down about 15lbs and me only a lousy 5lbs..... oh pooh!!
Anyways.....we are using The Belly Fat Cure and eating almost no sugar and super low carbs. I feel so much better!! But boy does it make you realize how much sugar we eat everyday, and let's face it....sugar is bad for us!!
So I found this recipe for ketchup....cuz let's face it a fry isn't a fry without ketchup!! I just did some adjustments according to what I had on hand, plus my sugar substitute!!
*ps- sugar substitutes are bad!! I use something called xylitol....it is completely natural!! AND IT TASTES JUST LIKE SUGAR!!!!
