Trader Joe's Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole

I didn't have high hopes for this one (reduced guilt guacamole? really?) but it's awesome. The only downfall is a high sodium content (1 serving contains 12% of the recommended daily value) but if eaten in moderation it's fine.

Satay Peanut Sauce

I just tried this for the first time with shirataki noodles as an alternative to pad thai - it was surprisingly good! 1 Tbsp is only 30 calories and 2g fat...winning!

Enchilada Sauce

I used this as a dressing on a bed of greens with tomato and grilled chicken because I'm strange...but it's tasty, low fat and not terribly high in calories!

Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Sauce

Big thanks to SkinnyScoop Tastemaker Kristine Fretwell for listing this one! Zero calorie, low sugar, extreme flavor makes for a great topping or celery dipping sauce.
