Get FUELED with Molly | Love it, Like it, Hate it: Cream Sauce Ingredients


In honor of this week’s Eat Fit Dine Out day, we’re talking all things restaurants + supporting our local restaurants. And one thing we may be surprised to see as “Eat Fit” on the menu is creamy sauces. Typically made with heavy cream, our Eat Fit partners get creative with plant-based ingredients to create nutritious, delicious sauces that are Eat Fit approved.
