Most people love condiments! They are designed to be tasty and can dress up any bland food.
But, if you are trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet, condiments can be dangerously counter-productive. With hidden fat, sugar and calories, they can turn out to be your worst enemy.
There are some condiments you need to use sparingly; others you should try to avoid at all cost (i.e. mayo).
Thankfully, it's not all bad news and you don't need to avoid the extra squeeze of tastiness all together. There are condiments that have health benefits and which you should load up on.
