A great way to help your weight loss is to give up the convenience of store-bought pasta sauces and make them at home. Most store-bought sauces are filled with extra salt, sugar and other nasties that are not only bad for your health but also don’t help with your weight loss goals.
This super-simple pasta sauce uses a range of fresh produce and gets its flavour from ingredients like chilli, garlic and vinegar, as opposed to calorific and artificial additives. The primary ingredients are full of healthful and fat-fighting benefits as well.
Tomatoes are chock full of goodness. They are a good source of vitamins (A, C, K, potassium and folate); and are low in sodium, calories, and saturated fat.
Garlic is a well-known fat fighter. It boosts your metabolism, regulates your blood sugar, and even eliminates fat from the cells!
Red onions, as well as packing a big flavour hit, are great for cardiovascular health and can lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
