Weekly Health Tip: I Love Mustard!

You should make mustard your condiment of choice for a few reasons:

– Low in calories: Dijon has 5 cals per tsp, and Yellow Mustard has 0 cals!

– Mustard seeds contain selenium (an potent antioxidant) and omega-3 healthy fats

– Yellow mustard contains turmeric, which is an anti-inflammatory, and good for the health of your brain (especially memory)

– Awesome savoury flavour; a little goes a long way

– Versatile: use as a healthy condiment, in homemade salad dressings & sauces, as a marinade for meat, add to tuna or salmon salad instead of mayo, a healthy dip for whole grain pretzels or raw veggies

Not all mustard is created equal; look at the ingredient list to make sure it doesn’t contain any artificial food colouring. Maille Dijon and French’s Yellow Mustard are good choices.
