As the Skinny Chef, great taste and awesome flavors are at the core of everything that I create and savor. And while my focus is on making typical American dishes healthier, I don’t think people should be skinny.
People should be healthy and love the food they’re eating. How do we get there? It’s easy. We need to start cooking more in our own kitchens!
Good Health Begins In Your Kitchen!
As the Skinny Chef, it’s been my mission for the last 10 years to show America that healthy cooking & eating can be fresh, fun and flavorful – and empower people to take on a bigger role in their own health while enjoying life more.
I am passionate about making cooking at home a lot easier and irresistibly delicious – which is why last year, I embarked on a new project to bring out my own line of sauces!
What Makes Skinny Chef Superfood Sauces Great?
When you eat and cook meals at home, using wholesome superfoods loaded with nutrition, something truly magical happens: You entice your tastebuds and shape up your body, mind and waistline.
For me as a restaurant-trained chef and certified health coach, it’s got to be flavorful and healthy – which is why our all-natural superfood sauces are made from the best, most nutritious ingredients around such as low-calorie superfruits and fat-burning chilies.
All Skinny Chef Superfood Sauces contain a flavorful superfood and a spicy chili pepper to make each healthy, delicious and versatile. Sauces are:
- Sauces are:
- dairy-free, nut-free
- Sauces have:
- no high-fructose corn syrup
- no MSG
- no artificial preservatives
- no artificial colorings
- none of the top 10 allergens
At around 35 calories/serving (about half of any other sauce on the market), the sauces are ideal for those following a low-carb diet or are pre-diabetic. With around 40 mg sodium (per 2 tablespoons), the sauces are also appropriate for people that need to control their sodium intake.
In addition, the sauces are extremely versatile on different proteins and vegetables, suitable for any cooking technique – check out my website at skinnychef.com for healthy recipes, cooking videos and shopping lists to make cooking at home a cinch.
What’s The Taste Like? And Are They Really Spicy?
When we developed the sauces, we started with three requirements:
- Must taste great.
- Must be healthy with low calories/fat.
- Must use superfoods for extra nutrition boost.
What we came up with after countless taste tests (ok, hundreds…) is a set of versatile sauces that are amazingly flavorful, yet have only around 30 calories/serving – which is about half the calorie load of most sauces. So, perfect for those on a low-carb diet or pre-diabetics.
As a professional chef, these sauces really met my high standards… and curiously enough, they each change their flavor profile depending on what protein you’ll use them with…. So, you’ll get a certain flavor with fish or shrimp, yet another with chicken, and a third with pork or beef. How’s that for variety?
Wonder just how spicy these sauces are?
The Blazin’ Blueberry is pretty darn spicy with its habanero peppers, but it nicely balances with the sweetness of the blueberries. On the other end of the spiciness spectrum is the Goji Espresso with its predominant coffee flavor notes – while Cherry Chipotle and Pomegranate Cayenne fall in the middle range. After dozens of taste demos, we’ve never seen anyone not finding “their” sauce in the mix.
Goji Espresso Superfood Sauce
An antioxidant match made in heaven, tangy goji berries and rich espresso come together in this unique, sophisticated yet bold sauce. Ideal on superfoods, it’s also versatile on roasted vegetables, pork, beef, chicken and fish.
Cherry Chipotle Superfood Sauce
Smoky, spicy and sweet – anti-inflammatory cherries kiss chipotle to sweep you off your feet with richness that says “barbeque” time! Not just for burgers, pulled pork, beef or chicken, any vegetable lover will also revel in its richness.
Pomegranate Cayenne Superfood Sauce
Tart pomegranate frolics with spicy cayenne, sure to perk up your meals and taste buds. Turn dinner into a fiesta by drizzling this sauce on superfoods like salmon or salads – pork, chicken, and beef will also want to join the party.
Blazin’ Blueberry Superfood Sauce
Sweet antioxidant-rich blueberries paired with blistering hot habaneros will make your meals feverishly good. Perfect on superfoods like spinach, broccoli or kale, it will also add kick to pork, beef, chicken, fish and tofu.

Are you supporting charities?
I’m a big supporter of locally-grown superfoods, that’s why 1% from the profits of Skinny Chef Superfood Sauces will go to New York City’s largest farmer’s market that supports over 230 family-run farms and fisherman. Greenmarket was founded in 1976 with a two-fold mission: to promote regional agriculture by providing small family farms the opportunity to sell their locally grown products directly to consumers, and to ensure that all New Yorkers, regardless of economic background, can have access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer at a reasonable price.
