This Carrot Ketchup was born from an obvious need for a tasty, healthy ketchup substitute during my time on the autoimmune protocol. But as a lifelong ketchup-lover, I was worried that it just wouldn’t be good enough. I mean, I was a ketchup addict. If I didn’t quite like a dish, I could just put ketchup on it and be happy as a clam. It had been especially helpful as an aid to make organ meats more palatable. But look at this stuff! It has the same gorgeous red color of real ketchup and an unbelievably similar taste. In fact, how great this recipe turned out is what inspired me to try Nomato Sauce, which is still one of my most popular recipes. So if you’ve been missing ketchup on the AIP, too, or have to avoid nightshades for some other reason, give this stuff a try! Thanks to the vinegar, it keeps well in the fridge, but I wouldn’t hang onto it for more than two weeks.

I may make my living as a food blogger, but journey toward a more health-conscious lifestyle actually began with making my own cosmetics while I was still in high school–many years before I started “clean eating”. Desperate to get a handle on my sensitive skin and nose, I was also hoping for cheaper, more eco-friendly alternatives to store-bought products. If you’re in the same boat, making your own cosmetics and toiletries is easier than you might think! My e-book A Clean Face will give you the tools you need to get started for just $9.99.
