Simply Sweet Tomato Sauce (Paleo, SCD, GAPS)



Happy Thursday everyone! I hope you are having a great week so far.

If you saw my post for my Egg Free Cauliflower Crust a couple weeks ago you might have been waiting for the tomato sauce recipe that I promised. Well wait no longer friends. This is the recipe I was talking about. This one is great because not only is it delicious, but it is super easy to make. It only uses six ingredients and is ready in a matter of minutes (you're welcome!). You might think it strange that coconut flour is one of the ingredients, but it works great as a thickener and ads a hint of sweetness. You will just have to trust me on this one.

I never buy pre-made tomato sauces because they usually contain ingredients that I like to avoid (think refined sugars, "natural flavours" etc etc). And when it is this easy to make your own at home hopefully I can convince you to give up those pre-made sauces as well!

There are so many things you can do with this recipe. As you already know it can be used as a pizza sauce, but it is also great as a dip or a base for pasta sauces. I may or may not also just eat this straight out of the jar…. (yes it is that good).

On a totally unrelated topic, now that it is October I am seeing more and more Halloween decorations going up. My Pinterest feed is also being overwhelmed with Halloween related food, costumes and decorating ideas. I have to admit that I am not the biggest Halloween fan. I know I know I am so boring! Don't hate me. I used to love getting dressed up back when I was younger and more fun, but now I just view it as a total hassle (man I sound like an old woman!). Making a great costume requires a lot of time and effort, two things I can't really spare these days. However, I do like seeing the kids all dressed up when they come to the door.  Especially the little kids with snow suits under their costumes, who can barely walk from all the added bulk. God they are cute! And yes it often gets cold enough here for kids to have to wear their snow suits under their costumes, which makes getting dressed up even more challenging. For those of you who have never experienced this phenomenon, trust me when I say that you don't want to. Yet one of the many added joys of living in Calgary.

Are you planning on getting dressed up for Halloween? What are you planning to be? Have you decorated your house already or are you planning to?

Alright everyone I will leave it there for today. As always I would be thrilled if you followed me on PinterestInstagram and Facebook! I am constantly posting other recipes and health related information on my social medial pages so I would't want you to miss out on anything! 

Happy Eating!
