Full Proof Your BBQ Sauce PLUS! Two #KBBody Approved Recipes

Barbecue sauce, rubs and marinades are easy, healthy ways to ensure flavorful, juicy results without adding a lot of fat or calories. However, do not mistake all BBQ sauces as healthy options.

While spices are a low calorie and healthy way to flavor foods, many ketchups and especially BBQ sauces are hiding high amounts of sugar.

 

Full Proof Your BBQ:

  • Check the label
  • Shop for low sodium options
  • All natural
  • No added sugar
  • Look at the sugar labels and then portion size, just because it says 7 grams of sugar doesn’t mean its for the full bottle- multiply that by the serving size- that is the true amount of sugar in the entire bottle
  • DO NOT forget that most chefs use the entire bottle (or more) for a BBQ plate of ribs, steak or chicken
  • Unlike meats, fish is typically marinated in lemon and oil (far less sugar)
  • When in doubt, make your own BBQ sauce (we have two recipes below)
  • OR use rub!
