7 Ways To Make Your Diet Food Taste Better


Diet food doesn’t always have to taste bland. However, some people feel that a little bit of extra taste and flavor in their diet food can make it more interesting.

Here are a few tips to help add flavors to your special food:

1. Adding Spices and Herbs to Your Food

Without compromising the calorie content of your food, you can add a great deal of taste to it. Basil, chili powder, tarragon, cilantro, cumin and many more can all be added to a wide range of food items such as boiled chicken, vegetables, beans and so on.

2. Sipping Red Wine with your Food

There are many benefits of red wine and taking small sips of red wine with food can actually make it a bit more interesting. You will notice that the drink will help you swallow the food easily.

3. Avoid Salad Dressings

With cream, butter and mayo, you will be adding a great deal of taste to your diet food but at the cost of making it almost ineffective. Salad dressings are fattening but a topping of olive oil, vinegar, homemade salsa and the like is both non-fattening and flavor-full.

4. Using Pickle with your Food

After making sure that your pickle jar does not contain any harmful preservatives, add a little bit of pickle to your food to make it taste better. Pickled jalapenos, spicy pickled carrots, gherkins and many others are easily available in the market.

5. Using Garlic Flavored Olive Oil

Olive oil has many health related benefits and is used as a salad dressing as well. Adding a bit of garlic to your olive oil or purchasing garlic infused olive oil can give a better flavor to your diet food.

6. Add Raw Vegetables

If you are making a brown bread sandwich with boiled or grilled chicken, adding raw vegetables (onion, tomatoes, cilantro, corn, mushroom, capsicum etc) can make your sandwich both filling and delicious.

7. Make Use of Dry Fruits
