I do not eat it on ice cream, I promise. Not yet, anyway.
I am trying to eat healthier these days, which brings me to the second reason I hate that I am addicted: it is not healthy. It is full of sugar - usually in the form of corn syrup (which is one of the worst things to put in your body, according to all of the health experts out there).
I am not willing to change my diet, however, to become ketchup-free. Instead I begin looking for homemade recipes and adapting them until I hit upon a recipe I liked. All the recipes I found called for either white cane sugar, brown sugar, or Splenda. I was trying to eat more "naturally" along with healthfully, so those were not options. Stevia is a sweetener that is calorie free and natural, so that is what I put in my recipe. I have to say that it is delicious and way better
than store-bought! Plus now I think I can count it as a vegetable serving:)
