Tuna, Green Chilies, Veggie Pasta, and Veggie Straws

Condiments are a good way to spruce up what can sometimes be a boring healthy meal. These are a few that I like to use. They are all low in calories, but can also be high in sodium, so as with everything they are used in moderation.

Sweet Jalepano Relish, Pace Picante Sause, Hot Mustard, Pickled Spicy Veggie Mix, Yellow Mustard, Wing Sauce, Dill Relish
