What are those dang new healthy recipe items any way? 3 of 10

Standard

New to healthy eating?

You are probably like I was in the beginning of my healthy eating journey.

I would download and print off recipes that sounded great but there would be items I had no idea what they were much less able to pronounce.

Then trying to locate them was like pulling teeth.

Well, I’m going to list them for you on the next few post, and try to explain what they are, where to find them, how to make at home if it’s possible and even how to pronounce them as well!!!!

Here we go with #3

3. Tamari – a gluten free soy sauce made from the by-products of fermented soy beans but with out wheat.  It’s specifically a Japanese soy sauce made from the by-products of miso paste. It’s also is darker, richer tasting, more balanced and not as salty as soy sauce. It’s used in stir-fry’s, marinades, and in dipping sauces. They even have a low sodium Tamari that I use.

I love using it in any recipe that calls for soy sauce. If you haven’t tried making Carrot  Dogs, you really need to. They are so yummy and better for you than “carcinogenic” hot dogs.

Check out “The So Abby Show” on this video on a great explanation about Tamari.
