Best BBQ Sauce
Before we start with the best healthy holiday recipes for your next grilling party, you need to have your own homemade sugar free barbecue sauce.
Regular high sugar barbecue sauce can have up to 10 grams of sugar per tablespoon. That will guarantee to knock you out of ketosis. And when you want to stay within your daily carb limits over the holiday summer season, making your own tangy keto BBQ sauce recipe is so easy.
