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.

A Golfing Workout
By walking and carrying your clubs, you can make golf into a decent calorie burning activity. Here's a rough example for a 190 pound man and a 135 pound woman. They carry clubs and play for 4 hours per week. The man burns an extra 170 calories per hour and would eventually weigh about 8 pounds less! Numbers for the woman are roughly 120 calories extra per hour and 5-6 pounds less.

Curried Quinoa Lentil Salad
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: This is a great lunch or dinner side dish, full of protein and vegetables. Lentils are loaded with fiber, folate, iron, protein, and other vitamins and minerals, lentils are a nutritional fountain of youth. Researchers who studied the elderly found that eating these earthy-tasting seeds (and other legumes) is the single most important dietary factor in longevity. When it comes to fiber, a mere half cup of lentils provides around a third of your daily requirements. Whether you purchase lentils prepackaged or in bulk, look for those that appear largely unbroken (bags with broken lentils appear "dusty") and when you get home, don't mix newly purchased lentils with older ones; the older they are, the longer they take to cook. Keep them stored in a cool, dry place, and they will stay fresh for several months.
