Clean & Gut Friendly Italian Ragu Recipe:
If you have a love for Rich Tasting & Comforting Italian food, then you will love this simple recipe that is easier on the tummy. I frequent Trader Joe’s because they have a lot of simple organic ingredients that are priced incredibly low for clean eating families. You can get a Organic Italian Sauce at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods- BUT they will likely contain sugar- i.e. 6 grams of sugar per 1/2 cup which translates into 36 grams of sugar in a jar of sauce. If you are avoiding sugar, and you are on a anti-inflammatory protocol, then you may want to consider a quick homemade version. Your gut Does not like Sugar… repeat- your body does not like sugar! Sugar is not Gut Friendly.
