Hungry Girl Today: 4.24.15
GIRLS BITE OUT
It's totally possible to add major flavor without adding major calories -- here are 15 condiments with 15 calories or less per serving...
Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
1 tsp.: 5 calories, 0g fat, 150mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0.5g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
This spicy sauce is the hot condiment du jour, and isn't likely to wane in popularity anytime soon. Fine by us! Watch out, though: Creamy mayo-based sriracha sauces are common, but they're far from guilt-free.
Stubb's Green Chile Anytime Sauce
1 tbsp.: 5 calories, 0g fat, 240mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
Stubb's has killer BBQ sauces, and this marinade-style sauce is great too. It's definitely for spice lovers -- a little goes a long way. Use it to baste raw poultry or fish, or add it to your food after it's been cooked. They call it Anytime Sauce for a reason...
Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce
1 tsp.: 0 calories, 0g fat, 120mg sodium, <1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
This hot sauce does more than ramp up the spice level -- the smoky flavor is incredible. A total must-have for seasoning meats, and really good on potatoes. Plus, it's the perfect ingredient for making low-cal chipotle mayo; a bit of this sauce mixed into light mayo, and you're set.
Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
1 tsp.: 0 calories, 0g fat, 190mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
This sauce is a total staple -- it makes everything taste like hot wings! (Click for proof.) With its serious heat and tangy taste, it's the perfect way to jazz up ordinary dishes.
Beaver Hickory Bacon Mustard
1 tsp.: 10 calories, 0g fat, 70mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
Beaver makes some incredible flavored mustards, like this lip-smacking bacon-infused pick. We're also fans of the brand's Bread & Butter Pickle Mustard, with just 15 calories per tsp. Mmmm...
Mrs. Dash Lime Garlic Marinade
1 tbsp.: 15 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
By name-dropping Mrs. Dash, we may have already tipped you off as to why this marinade is special -- it's salt-free! So all you sodium counters should snap up this citrus stuff. The Teriyaki marinade in the line has slightly higher stats, but the Garlic Herb and Lemon Pepper also hit the 15-calories-or-less mark.
Saucy Mama Smoky Garlic Mustard
1 tsp.: 0 calories, 0g fat, 55mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
More mustard! This one is totally different from ordinary mustard -- it's mild and creamy, with a serious gourmet taste. Worth ordering online if you're a serious mustard head. Want a more accessible option? Look no further than classic Hellmann's/Best Foods Dijonnaise. (No smoke or garlic, but SO good!)
Margie's Mango Chipotle Marinade
1 tbsp.: 15 calories, 0g fat, 55mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, 3g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
Another find for your marinade arsenal -- this one's all-natural and made with real fruit. Margie's whole line is pretty amazing, and when it comes to the tastiest fruits in the game, it's hard to beat mango. This also works well as a sauce... Try it on your stir-fry!
Vivi's Original Sauce Carnival Mustards
1 tbsp.: 15 calories, 0g fat, 190 - 200mg sodium, 4g carbs, 0g fiber, 3g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
We've been writing about this stuff since 2007, and we still love it. It's like a blend of mustard, cocktail sauce, and salsa… in a good way, we swear! Another one worth ordering online. It comes in three rockin' flavors: Classic, Sizzlin' Chipotle, and Roasted Grandstand Garlic. Yum times three!
Newman's Own Medium Pineapple Salsa
2 tbsp.: 15 calories, 0g fat, 90mg sodium, 3g carbs, <1g fiber, 3g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
This salsa has just enough fruity goodness to tip it into sweet-meets-savory territory, and its versatility knows no bounds. Top off your salads, use it as a chip dip, spoon it over chicken... As always, Newman's salsa is all-natural, and all the profits go to charity. Now that's sweet.
Dill Pickle Relish
1 tbsp.: 3 calories, 0g fat, 235mg sodium, 0.5g carbs, 0g fiber, 0.5g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
This topper's so old-school, it's often forgotten, but it's a totally tasty addition to sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, and more. Don't confuse this with sweet relish -- with 20 calories per tablespoon, it just missed the mark for this list. (But we love that stuff too!)
Nakano Balsamic Blend Seasoned Rice Vinegar
1 tbsp.: 15 calories, 0g fat, 190mg sodium, 4g carbs, 0g fiber, 4g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
Two of the best-tasting vinegar flavors in one! (We love all of Nakano's seasoned rice vinegars, but the others clock in at 20 calories per tablespoon, hence they're not on this list.) Drizzle this over veggies, salad, chicken, fish... You name it!
Fresh Salsa or Pico de Gallo
2 tbsp.: 10 calories, 0g fat, 112mg sodium, 2.5g carbs, 0g fiber, 1.5g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
Hit up the refrigerated section where the hummus and premade dips are stocked. That's where you'll find salsa and pico de gallo with the freshest of flavor. Bonus? These often have less sodium than jarred versions. Hooray for that!
1 tbsp.: 15 calories, 0g fat, 70mg sodium, 4g carbs, 0g fiber, 3g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
Thanks to Shark Tank, we were introduced to this mind-blowing condiment. Part slaw, part salsa, part relish… The flavor is sweet and tangy, and it comes in Original, Spicy, Garlic, and Spicy Garlic. Serve it with your grillables this BBQ season. You'll be the toast of the town...
Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tbsp.: 3 calories, 0g fat, 1mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
The Internet is full of debatable claims about the amazing things that apple cider vinegar can do, but there's nothing questionable about the flavor: It's tangy and delicious! Use it as a DIY dressing base, or just splash it over your salad. It's also imperative when making our special no-guilt BBQ sauce…
