Health Tip: Make Healthy Foods Taste Better
(HealthDay News) -- The better foods taste, the more likely you are to eat them.
So the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests how to make healthy foods more flavorful and appealing:
Cook absorbent grains such as barley and rice in reduced-sodium, low-fat beef or chicken broth.
When making dough, before baking add ingredients such as sun-dried tomatoes, herbs or cheese.
Experiment with different herbs such as coriander, cumin, basil or caraway.
Use a sharp, grated cheese such as romano on salad, pasta, vegetables or rice.
Use dried fruits (cranberries, figs, apricots) to add flavor; moisten them by soaking in broth, fruit juice or cooking wine.
Season foods with a sweet, savory or tangy marinade. Just check the label to make sure it's low in sodium.
