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.
Looking for high-quality meat?
The great nutrition conundrum of our times is how to make a healthy diet sustainable, not just for us and our families, but for future generations. It’s no secret that factory farming has been disastrous for the environment, never mind the welfare of us or our food. So I try to prioritize ethically-harvested, sustainably-raised, grass-fed or pastured proteins. US Wellness Meats not only fits the bill, but they also have a huge variety of other products: Seafood, game meats, jerky, bone broth, sausage, tallow, pork rinds… there’s a lot to love. Free shipping combined with bi-weekly deals from their newsletter can make them more affordable than your local supermarket for meat that’s antibiotic-free, humanely-raised, and really, really good.
