BBQ sauce?
Posted Thursday, January 3, 2013 at 12:23 PM

I love Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ (original) sauce. I put it on my roasted cauliflower and also enjoy it on lima beans. Not tons -- may be a couple of tablespoons. My question is this - Is SBR's BBQ sauce okay for the Kickstart program?

Well, the original flavor appears to be vegan, and it has zero fat. So yes, it's okay for Kickstart. My only caution is that its number one ingredient is sugar (high fructose corn syrup). You're going to be basically consuming empty calories with this product. Approach with caution!

Make your own - it's not hard and much cheaper. http://www.64knights.com/recipes/recipe_46.htm is a good basic 'starter' recipe - we cut the heat/spice and add a little more sweet (agave, maple syrup, honey - which I know isn't vegan - if you like stevia, the liquid form would work). We can also tweak the salt level to our own taste (most bbq sauces are high on sodium). Works great for baked beans as well as BBQ type applications.

Thank you for your speedy replies! The sugar was the reason I was asking. I don't use it often for it to be a problem. Wink

Thanks again!

Robbie's Naturals

Their BBQ sauce tastes awesome, is all natural and low sodium. I found it at my local Whole Foods, you can also find it at some health food stores.
