‘If your goal is fat loss, they are things that can quickly add up so smarter choices are ideal most of the time,’ she explained.

The 11 supermarket options she picked out all cost under $10 and are healthier than common brands. 

‘Some are lower calorie for fat loss, some are lower sugar or lower fat and some are just tastier.’

However, she acknowledged that although they are better than others they are still processed foods, but if you like to buy condiments it’s better to buy healthy options.
