Health Tip: Make Healthy Foods Taste Better05/22/13
(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
- 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.
