I applaud the people who plan their healthy meals a week or even more in advance. That’s the secret to sticking to a healthy eating plan, they say. However, sometimes life gets crazy and it gets hard to plan ahead. What’s my secret to consistent healthy eating then? Sauce. Yes, sauce.
There’s nothing easier than cooking your choice of protein and/or vegetables and then simply adding a delicious sauce to the mix. It’s easy, and it tastes like you spent a lot more time cooking than you actually did.
If you want healthy eating to be easy, keep a few pre-made sauces in the fridge. Trust me. I have a handful of healthy store-bought sauces that I rotate, and then a few that are homemade (since not all of my favorite sauces, without any weird ingredients, can be found on the market). So stay saucy and make life easy for yourself by whipping up these 10 Wholesome Sauce Recipes…

Chop some veggies, throw some steamed or baked fish on top, pour some mango remoulade over the mix, and you have yourself a tangy, fruity, and flavorful lunch.

Paired with some crab or calamari. Hmmm…it doen’t get any better than that!
