1 – Canned Tomato Sauce
Spaghetti sauce in a can or jar is a really helpful shortcut in the kitchen, but it is typically loaded with sugar and sodium, not to mention chemical preservatives. It’s too bad, because tomatoes in general come loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants.
Making sauce at home can be a very rewarding experience, and it’s easy to make and can several batches at once. If that’s not your thing, read the labels at the store and experiment with brands that have less of the bad stuff. These efforts could stave off obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and even tooth decay.
