Stephanie and Joe's Engagement - runcooklaugh.comLove is in the air! I am very excited to announce that my youngest sister recently got engaged and they make an amazing couple. Yay… that means I get to plan a wedding. Location is yet to be determined but I think a destination wedding is in the cards… Tuscany perhaps. I am so happy to call her fiancé my brother-in-law not only because he is a sweetheart, fun to be around and has an amazing heart, but he is also runner! A casual family gathering took place on Sunday and everyone contributed to a nutritious dish. I was in charge of the meat and keeping it as healthy as possible was my priority.Easy Grilled Chicken with Healthy BBQ Sauce - runcooklaugh.com

In today’s society most people like to douse their dish with unhealthy condiments. Yuck😝 Unfortunately, training our children to not appreciate their meal by adding ketchup or mayo will eventually lead to weight problems and health issues as an adult.Easy Grilled Chicken with Healthy BBQ Sauce - runcooklaugh.com

Many condiments are loaded with MSG, high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oils. These artificial enhancers contain excitotoxins which stimulate your taste buds and distort the real flavour of the food. This pathological process causes nerve cells to be damaged or killed because of the excessive stimulation by neurotransmitters such as glutamate. In time the accumulation may be the underlying cause of neurological inflammation and the damage may lead to diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and ALS.Easy Grilled Chicken with Healthy BBQ Sauce - runcooklaugh.com

I urge you if you are going to use condiments please read the ingredients. Not just filled with additives, they are also high in salt which can lead to high blood pressure. After doing all the research on several of these ingredients, I decided to make my own ketchup for this dish. I will be posting it in the next few weeks… all you will need is 4 ingredients. But for now enjoy this healthy BBQ chicken!Easy Grilled Chicken with Healthy BBQ Sauce - runcooklaugh.com
