Have you ever read the ingredients on a bottle of prepared sauce? Full of corn syrup, caramel color and artificial flavoring, these products can irritate the body leading to inflammation and sluggish energy. If you need a simple clean-eating stir-fry sauce that is quick to make at home, create your own sauce rather than ingesting all that sugar and preservatives in a bottled product. Home-made sauce provides brighter flavors to your dish and health-boosting properties. Choose fresh herbs and spices for added vitamins, minerals, antioxidants in your sauce.
