Condiments: Which to Enjoy, Which to Avoid

Condiments can add flavor and excitement to food, but be sure you dress your food for success! This means choosing condiments with no added sugars or artery-clogging oils. Ketchup, for example, is loaded with sugar, as are some salsas and steak sauces. Always read labels carefully, andchoose products made with good fats, like extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil, and no added sugars.

Consider this list of condiments to enjoy and avoid:

Enjoy:

  • Mustard
  • Horseradish
  • Hot sauce
  • Pesto
  • Vinegars
  • Soy sauce
  • Worcestershire sauce (enjoy only 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, since it's made with molasses)
  • Sour cream (light and reduced-fat versions)
  • Cream cheese (reduced-fat or light)
  • Trans-fat-free margarine
  • Sugar-free jams and jellies
  • Sugar-free syrups
Enjoy the following condiments but be sure to choose products that don't contain trans fats or added sugars. Check labels carefully!
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Salsa
  • Steak sauce
  • Mayonnaise (choose a regular full-fat or low-fat variety)
Avoid
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Ketchup (look for varieties made with no added sugars)
  • Cocktail sauce (look for varieties made with no added sugars)
  • Teriyaki sauce
  • Honey mustard
  • Regular jellies and jams
  • Maple syrup
