These days when someone talks about dieting and eating healthy, we can't help but think about broccoli. It's what Hollywood superstars, bodybuilders, and fitness models tell you they eat. But in reality, whether you want to lose 5 or 50 pounds, eating healthy doesn't have to be bland. In fact, it could be just as, if not more, delicious than eating unhealthy junk food. Here are the top 5 ways to make healthy food take amazing.
5 Tips To Make Healthy Food Taste Amazing
Use Coconut Oil
The standard “healthy cooking oil” is olive oil but a great alternative is coconut oil. Most people stay away from coconut oil due to its high saturated fat content, but the saturated fat in coconuts are actually very healthy and nutritious.
Add Nuts to Your Salad
You're already probably salad but if you want to add some extra crunch and texture to this bland vegetable then sprinkle some crushed nuts to your salad. It adds a great crunchy texture.
Go Crazy with Spices
Spices like cinnamon and nutmeg have zero calories so they are very diet-friendly. There's no reason for you to hold back on spices when cooking.
They can add massive amounts of flavor to your dish without the calories.
Add Fruit to Your Water
People say you should add lemon to flavor your water but one of the best ways to add flavor is by adding slices of fruit such as pineapple or apples to your water. It's like drinking juice without the calories.
This might be a no-brainer but you would be surprised by the amount of people who still go out to eat on a daily basis. I have nothing against people who go out to eat, but it is no lie when I say that restaurant food is more unhealthy than a home cooked meal, not to mention fresher and better tasting.
