Some foods just require condiments — and sometimes it’s just the easiest way to kick flavor up a notch! (Chipotle mayo, anyone?) But those tasty add-ons can also pack in extra calories — sometimes upwards of 200 per serving! To keep calorie consumption moderate, try swapping mashed avocado in for mayonnaise on that next sandwich for a lighter and more nutritious option.
