Nutritious Food doesn’t have to taste bad. Dieting doesn’t mean starving yourself.
Every time we think about diet, fitness, and nutrition, we instantly jump toward eating salads, boiled food and raw uncooked vegetables.
However, healthy eating shouldn’t be restrictive. Fitness doesn’t have to feel like a punishment.
Is that bland salad all that you will eat? Ahh, you’re dieting, right? How many times we have decided to go on a ‘diet’, only to eat food we don’t enjoy and drop the idea halfway through? Innumerable times, I guess?
We already know that counting calories are important for anyone trying to get fitter. But in order to stay fit, we do need to think about sustainable diet habits. After all, no one can eat salads throughout their lives. This is where we step in and help you find love-calorie hacks to make your food more nutritious and delicious. Now more people are cooking healthy and tasty food.
ADD SEASONAL FRUITS & VEGGIES TO YOUR DIET
With diet food, the more variety you add in, the less likely you will get bored with it. That’s why you should make the most of available seasonal fruits & veggies because they are less likely to be loaded with preservatives. THEY are fresher, therefore taste better, and are more healthier than the frozen ones.
THE THREE S- SEASON, SPRINKLE & SAUTÉ
Seasoning is extremely important for that tasty diet food. Think beyond sodium and experiment with herbs like thyme, oregano, garlic, and sauces like mustard and more.
The second most important is sprinkling your meal with some nutrient-dense nuts, seeds, fruits. A healthy meal has a good balance of micro and macronutrients. Lastly, sauté your food in power-packed flavourfull oils, like olive, sesame, canola, or any other.
ROASTED FOOD TASTES DELICIOUS TOO
Just like the ingredients, it’s always good to switch up your cooking methods too. Roasting is one of the healthiest ways to cook healthy and tasty food. It makes your meal more flavourful and yummier, without adding on the calorie count. The next time you crave butter chicken, go for roasted chicken instead.
ADD SOME HEALTHY SPREADS
Opt for Almond butter and Peanut butter as they are extremely rich in protein and are all-time favourites. Nut butters are both healthy and nutritious.
USE FLAVOURFUL SWEETENERS
For most of us, controlling sugar cravings is one of the hardest things to do. This is why most of us choose to our cup of tea or coffee without any sugar. However, you can always add a teaspoon of honey to your morning green tea to make it tastiest healthy food.
You can opt for dark chocolate with high cocoa content.
ENJOY FLAVOURFUL DIET.
