Whole 30 Day 7: BBQ Sauce

      9 Comments on Whole 30 Day 7: BBQ Sauce

BBQ sauce is one of the best condiments, I love adding that sweet tangy sauce to everything. However, has the most sugar of all the condiments. This Whole30 BBQ sauce is sweetened only using apples, make it the perfect healthy condiment!


Wow! Day 7 has definitely been my best whole30 day so far! I don’t know if it’s because I hit the one week mark, but I’m feeling great! Woke up early and hit the ground running, was productive all day and didn’t get even a little bit tired. I don’t remember that last time I felt so alert for such a long period of time. So what better to do with all that energy then some recipe testing. Within my day 7 post I’ll share my take on whole30 bbq sauce.


I started my day 7 with a family brunch, not being sure if I would be able to eat anything I had some celery and almond butter in the car. And sure enough, I was able to eat some scrabbled eggs cooked in oil. I even turned town a mimosa without thinking twice!


What was harder doing whole30 was a family BBQ. Which is what inspired me to make my own healthy sauce, so I could still pig out on some pork. While I’m not sure if this sauce could ever replaced Sweet Baby Ray’s in my book. It’s definitely a much healthier option and still has that balance between sweet and tangy with a hint of smokey. And this recipe could not be any easier to make. Especially if you buy the already peeled and cut butternut squash like I did.

So easy to make this guilt free BBQ sauce. Just be sure to find mustard and hot sauce without any added sugars. You can substitute the smoked salted for regular salt but wont get the smokey BBQ flavor so I definitely recommend using some. You can find it on Amazon and it tastes amazing on everything so it wont go to waste.
