Health Tip: Make Healthy Foods Taste Better

Health Tip: Make Healthy Foods Taste Better

05/22/13

(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.
