Variety Is the Spice Of Life And The Life Of New Meals
One of the biggest concerns that many will face when they are looking to have a healthy eating style is the fear of loss of food. Of course, if you are looking to eat better, then yes, you will in all likelihood need to give up some of your favorites or save them for a special occasion.
When one is looking to cook healthy there are plenty of things that one can add to a dish to enhance the flavor and to allow for the dish to taste even better. Use of herbs and garlic as opposed to putting in high amounts of salt will lead to not only better tasting, but better for you dishes as well.
Learn to use natural herbs in your cooking to bring out the best flavors and to allow for the maker to be able to get creative in their cooking. Use of different types of peppers and different herbs will only encourage and enhance flavors without covering them up.
Look into possibly starting a small herb garden of your own so as to be able to have the items you want readily available so you can keep the food coming and on a different level than what it is that you are used to. Use these items not only in preparation, but in the cooking and to enhance flavor upon completion as well. Salt per se is not bad, but it needs to be used in moderation as opposed to the primary or only seasoning agent that takes residence in your kitchen.
Look in the corner of your kitchen or in that small cupboard. Here you will rediscover all of the spices that you forgot existed. Here you will be able to bring out the flavor of your healthy cooking and take it o a new level with little to no effort. See what it is that you have hidden and try it in different dishes to see how it tastes and what it else it could possibly work with.
Try to think of other recipes or other ways that you can make the bland simple foods you have taste better. I t may be as simple as adding a sprig of parsley or grinding some fresh black pepper over the top. These simple steps will lead to many different and better things.
