If you have been on the search for the perfect ketogenic friendly replacement for your favorite condiment, look no further.  You will be amazed and pleasantly surprised at just how effortless making your own ketchup truly is.  This version is sugar free, contains no suspicious ingredients, and takes less than 2 minutes to make.

The Main Ingredients in This Ketchup Include:

  • Tomato paste
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Spice

In general, tomatoes should always be eaten in moderation on a ketogenic diet.  They do contain higher amounts of natural sugars and carbohydrates that can kick you out of ketosis if eaten in excess, but they also have nutritional benefits that should not be ignored.  One of the greatest ways to get some of these benefits and still remain in ketosis is using tomato paste.  It’s richer in flavor than plain tomatoes, more concentrated so you can use less, it’s also lower in carbs, yet still contains the same nutrients and compounds such as lycopene, a powerful antioxidant.

Benefits of Lycopene:

  1. Helps prevent cancer
  2. Brain booster
  3. Pain inhibitor

#1: Rich in Antioxidants

In a world now full of chemicals, pesticides, processed foods, and other toxins that are harmful to your body eating a diet rich in foods that contain antioxidants is a must.  Lycopene helps to protect your body against these toxic elements and reduces the amount of damage they can cause. It can also play a role in preventing and slowing many types of cancer including breast and prostate cancer.

#2: Improve Cognition

Studies have shown that lycopene may help delay the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease by counteracting cell damage in the brain.  It can combats specific mitochondrial interactions found within this vital organ. Lycopene is a strong phytonutrient that can also be beneficial in reducing seizures and repairing the brain from previous seizures.

#3: Alleviates Neuropathy

Promising research has shown that eating foods like tomatoes which are rich in lycopene can help alleviate pain caused by nerve damage.  It expresses pain inhibiting capabilities in your body which is great news from those who suffer with complications of diabetes, HIV/AIDS, spinal diseases, and many other neurological disorders.

The next time your bunless keto burger calls for a healthy serving of your favorite condiment, never miss out again.  Keep this recipe in your regular meal prep rotation so that you will always have a jar on hand in the fridge.  Ketchup is also perfect to use in meatloaf, perfect for dipping your keto friendly fries in, and also makes a great base for thousand island dressing.
