4 Healthy BBQ Recipes

Healthy BBQ Recipes


Healthy_Barbecue_SauceWith its sweet, smoky, salty and sometimes tangy nuances, barbecue sauce can transform a bland piece of grilled chicken breast into a dish that dances on the taste buds. But most bottled versions are loaded with added sugars — some with 12 to 16 grams of sugar per two tablespoon serving. And, how many tablespoons do you think are doused on your average pulled pork sandwich?

If making your own sauce seems fussy, it’s really not. Simply add the ingredients into a pot and simmer for less than 40 minutes while you do your other weekly meal prep. While it’s not as quick as pulling a bottle off a grocery store shelf, this homemade, healthier sauce provides the smoky-sweet flavor you crave with less sugar.
