Many people associate a healthful diet with bland, boring foods like plain chicken breast, brown rice, and steamed veggies. But you don’t have to sacrifice flavor to enjoy a healthy meal! Your meals can be wholesome and delicious! One of the easiest ways to do this is to stock up on low calorie sauces, condiments, and dressings to liven up your foods while keeping your calories & macros in check.
Inglehotter Cream Dill Mustard can be found at Co-op grocery stores in the produce section near the bakery. Try it on chicken or homemade wraps!
Yellow mustard has zero calories and is readily available at most any restaurant or grocery store. Grab some yellow mustard packets from a restuarant to keep on hand for lunches or road-trips.
Wildbrine saurkraut is a probiotic food and is low in calories. Add it to burgers, sandwiches, or wraps. I enjoy eating a few tablespoons alongside my eggs in the morning. You can find it at Sobeys or Superstore (in the refrigerated area of the natural food section) or at Dad's Organic Market (in Saskatoon).
Sugar-free ketchup is much lower in carbohydrate than classic ketchup. I enjoy it with roasted potatoes or on homemade burgers. It can be found at most any grocery store in the condiment section!
Frank's Buffalo Sauce and Sriracha are tasty on omelettes or eggs if you like some heat. Try Frank's Buffalo Sauce in my recipe for Buffalo Chicken "Spaghetti" Bake
Low calorie dressings:
- Bolthouse salad dressings are great as a dip for raw veggies, on salads, or drizzled onto tacos or burrito bowls (see this post). They can be found at Sobeys, Safeway, Walmart, and Save On Foods.
- Olive Garden Light can be found at Sobeys in the produce section! Great flavor and very low in fat and carbs.
- Litehouse Sriracha & Lime can be found at Independent Grocers or Superstore next to the bagged salads. It is very low in fat and packs a lot of flavor! I love it drizzled on Poke bowls.
Good Foods Tomatillo & Avocado salsa can be found at Costco and is an amazing addition to any Mexican meal! Check out our Mexican Meal Prep post for ideas.
Penny's Pico de Gallo from Costco is my favorite way to add flavor to my morning omelette or homemade tacos!
