Healthy Dressing/ Sauces Substitutes

Love your sauces and can’t resist letting them go regardless of the amount of calories and hidden fats inside them? Well, here is a post on how you can still get your sauces while reducing their fat content! Sounds good right?? Let’s get started!

Low-fat cottage cheese for sour cream

They both add a creamy texture to many dishes, but sour cream is packed with fat while low-fat cottage cheese is packed with protein.

 

Avocado with Greek yogurt

Lovely accompaniment for salads or can be used as nacho dips!

 

Pureed fruit for syrup

Both sweeten flapjacks or a nice whole-wheat waffle, but pureed fruit warmed on the stovetop with a bit of honey packs much less sugar than classic maple. Plus, it provides an extra dose of antioxidants and vitamins.

 

Herbs or citrus juice for salt

Fresh herbs and citrus juice can provide just as much flavor as salt without the added risks of excess sodium intake.

 

Garlic powder for salt

Just like fresh herbs, garlic powder can provide a flavorful-punch without adding sodium.

 

Low-sodium soy sauce for standard soy sauce

The taste is virtually the same, but choosing a low- or reduced-sodium variety can cut down sodium intake by nearly half.

 

Homemade salad dressing for bottled dressing

By making dressing from scratch at home, it’s easy to cut out the added sugar, sodium, and preservatives typically found in pre-made dressings. Try mixing vinegar or lemon juice and oil in a 2:1 ratio and flavoring with spices like rosemary, thyme, oregano, and pepper!

Healthy food can still taste as good or even better so start eating right today!
