Healthy Condiments 

Print Friendly 

Description:
You can help to spice up your food and make the whole diet process much easier by learning how to make some great tasting, low calorie and fat condiments.
You can also look into the various store bought condiments and sauces as well because more and more are being introduced into the market. Be sure to pay attention to the reduced sugar varieties also as while a condiment may be low in fat to begin with, if it's loaded with sugar it isn't really going to be a whole lot better for your diet anyway.

Here are some recipes you can try to get started. Note that due to the reduced fat content, they may be on the thinner side so you will therefore require less of them to flavour your food.


Ingredients:
Tangy Burger Dressing

¼ cup ketchup
1/8 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp vinegar
½ tsp garlic powder
sweetener to taste if desired
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and then serve.



Sweet And Sour Sauce

¼ cup chicken broth
3 tbsp cup vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp honey or agave nectar
Garlic Powder
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and then serve.

Teriyaki Sauce

2 tbsp chicken broth
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp onion soup mix
½ tsp garlic powder
Stir ingredients together and then serve.


Directions:
Honey Mustard Sauce

1 tbsp mustard
½ tbsp fat free mayonnaise
2 tbsp honey or agave nectar
1 tbsp water or soup broth if thinner consistency is desired
Mix all ingredients together and serve.


Low Fat Tartar Sauce

1 cup fat free mayonnaise
1/3 cup sweet pickle relish
1 tbsp minced capers
2 hard boiled egg whites, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
dash of Worcestershire sauce
dash of hot pepper sauce
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and chill before serving.


Creamy Dill Sauce

¼ cup fat free sour cream
¼ cup fat free mayonnaise
1/8 cup skim milk
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tbsp dill weed
Mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise and milk. Blend in spices and then serve.


Notes: Remember when you want to sweeten something it is best to use a natural source as your body knows what to do with it, rather than the chemical kind of sweetener that stores and accumulates in your body and also creates more cravings.

Wellness Tip
Exercising for a Better Mood
If you're feeling down, consider adding exercise to your to-do list. Research shows that exercise has the ability to improve mood and reduce depression. Even if you are seriously depressed, exercise can still be one of several interventions recommended by your physician or mental health professional. Exercise is not a cure all, but it releases endorphins, often creates a sense of accomplishment, and thus improves well-being.
