Healthy recipe -- low-calorie mayonnaise

When its evening and hunger strikes, it can be easy to go for that garlic bread with mayonnaise without thinking about the calories. Whether you are packing your own evening snack or hitting the nearby deli, here is a healthy swap you can make to cut back on calories without skipping out on the flavour. This healthy mayonnaise is low in calories and won't show on your waistline. Prepared with brown bread and curd, it is rich in both fibre and calcium. It is also rich in carbohydrates and can give you an instant energy boost.

And if you absolutely have no time to prepare mayonnaise at home, mustard is a better choice than store-bought mayonnaise when it comes to condiment for your sandwich. One tablespoon of mayonnaise contains 57 calories while the same amount of mustard contains only four calories. Here are the calorie counts of different sauces and dips. Also, if you think you need dressings for your salad, go for lemon juice instead of the mayo. Lemon will not only enhance the flavour but will add a negligible amount of calories.
