Everyone needs to have a good, low-carb sauce recipe on hand. It’s a great way to spice up otherwise simple meals, such as meat and cheese sandwiches (like this one).
Most sauces contain low-quality vegetable oils and refined sugars, which lead to disease-promoting inflammation and DNA damage in the body.
Our recipe calls for unsweetened almond or coconut milk, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, and basil. These ingredients contain very few carbs, no refined sugar, and plenty of healthy fat and protein to fill you up without affecting insulin levels.
Basil is also an excellent source of antioxidants that have been shown to promote liver health (*). In fact, research shows that basil contains 32 active compounds that contribute to the plant’s antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, nematicidal, and anticancer properties (*).
