10 Guilt-Free Dips To Replace Mayonnaise & Ketchup This Eid

It’s not really a BBQ party until the dips show up. A dollop of cream cheese, a drizzle of ketchup and a spoonful of mayo can make even the blandest food a huge crowd-pleaser.

But every good thing comes with a catch, all these condiments are loaded with calories that no one is counting.

If you're wondering how much fat can a blob of mayonnaise add anyway, the answer is plenty. One tablespoon provides roughly 94 calories; 10 grams of fat; and no protein, fibre, vitamin A, vitamin C, iron or calcium.

Instead of drowning yourself in hidden calories this Eid season, how about keeping it clean and healthy?

4. Creamy Beet Tahini Dip

We'd eat this gorgeous neon delight for the colour alone. But this beet-infused tahini dip tastes better than it looks.

An essential part of Lebanese cuisine, tahini is a healthy blend of roasted sesame seeds, garlic, lemon, olive oil and water. Add some spices and blended beetroot for a rich creamy taste and you'll have an Instagram-worthy sidekick to your BBQ grills.
