Calories in sauces
Do you sometimes take a sauce with your meal, but are you afraid that the sauce is very fatty? In many cases, this fear is unjustified. There are a lot of sauces that are not that fat at all and that you can continue to eat just fine. As long as you make the right choices, you can have a sauce during your diet.
Sauce for a better taste
Many dishes taste a lot less tasty without sauce. People who are on a diet will still like to eat the sauces. Fortunately, there are always sensible and less sensible choices for sauces. Some sauces are made from water or milk, while others require butter or mayonnaise. The number of calories is of course a lot higher with these fatty ingredients.
Which sauces are better for a diet?
Trying to lose weight, but still want to enjoy a diet? In general, sauces with a red color are less fat and contain fewer calories than sauces with a white color. Always pay close attention to the name of the sauce. If the name has something to do with ‘creamy’ or ‘butter’, then you know for sure that it is not a good choice. Usually sauce that you have made yourself is also a lot better for you than ready made sauces. If you make the sauce yourself, you can decide for yourself how much goes in it. You can therefore make creamy and butter sauces a lot less fat by using less butter or cream.
Never count calories
It is regularly recommended to count calories. However, this has the opposite effect. Counting calories is not wise, because you are more likely to pass out. In addition, calories are not everything, since other things such as carbohydrates and vitamins. In any case, counting calories ensures that you are mainly busy with your diet and never get a moment of rest. See the table in this article mainly as a guideline to see which sauces you should or should not eat. It is never wrong to know roughly what is good and what is less good for you.
