[THE SEVEN] Staple Meals | Sauces

This article is from the Staple Meals installment of our series "THE SEVEN | Principles Of Nutrition For Life in Sync" and provides recipes for sauces to be used on the bowls. For a little more context on what we're up to here, this intro post will fill you in.

Eating amazing nutrient-dense, clean and low-carb meals doesn’t have to involve complex cooking or tons of time. The recipes in this series are delicious, inspired by our travels, and designed to make eating according to the Seven Principles easy and enjoyable. 

Below you will find some of our favorite sauces to eat on bowls. For each sauce, blend all ingredients, plus salt and pepper to taste, on med-high for ~30 seconds. Add a bit of water if necessary to attain desired consistency. Our sauces will keep well in a sealed container in the fridge for 4-5 days.
