More Healthy Alternatives to Condiments

You can spice up and season your food with condiments when you know what to avoid - and what to reach for instead. Condiments such as mustard, rice wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar and low-sodium salt are healthy alternatives to the typical condiments.

To make your food more flavorful, you can also use natural herbs and spices to season your dish instead of salt. Some great-tasting spices and seasonings to add to your food include curry powder, ginger, lemon rind, rosemary, basil and bay leaves. You might need to do some extra work to find these, but your efforts will pay off.

Healthier choices in condiments do not contain any fat, and in some cases, are calorie-free. You can still enjoy your favorite dish and enhance its flavor without sabotaging your diet by saying no to condiments made with mayonnaise, sugar and oils and sticking with lighter and fat-free versions of your favorites instead.
