I love very spicy and hot foods. When I have a sandwich, I substitute cheese with a Southwestern Mustard or Jalepeno mustard.
With the mustard's big taste, I wouldn't fully taste the cheese. I've eliminated calories and added flavor!
I always thought that it wasn't a sandwich unless it had cheese. This was one of the many habits I had to break. Using spicy condiments made this an easy one to break. Now when I do eat cheese, I like to eat it by itself so I can fully savor the flavor.

It seems like a lot of condiments have serving sizes of two tablespoons--salsa, peanut butter, sour cream, etc. I was making an egg burrito a while ago and put sour cream and salsa in it. I didn't realize until afterward, but I had accidentally measured with the 1/2 tablespoon, so I was actually only eating 1 tablespoon total of each. Since then, I always do this, and I almost always have enough of the condiment. It helps me save on fat and calories, but still get the flavor. Try it out!
