How to Make Your Healthy Food Taste Great

Hey guys!

I can’t overstate the importance of good nutrition when you’re trying to reach your fitness goals. Whether you’re trying to burn fat, build lean muscle, or maintain your current body composition, your diet is seriously so important!

But as you’ve probably experienced, eating right is not always the most exciting thing. Healthy foods can be bland and leave you feeling unsatisfied.

Eating this way meal after meal is great for reaching your goals, but it can wear you down mentally. I mean really, a girl can only eat so much plain chicken and veggies, am I right?

But before you die of boredom from your next meal, consider my top tip for spicing up your food!

Spice Things Up

Some spices strewn across a table

As a personal trainer and national physique competitor, I’ve had to be pretty strict with what I eat for as long as I remember. So believe me when I say that I totally feel your pain!

I know what it’s like to have to basically force down a Tupperware bowl full of bland rice and broccoli. It didn’t take very long before I started to explore options for adding some flavor to my food.

I knew that high-sugar, high-fat sauces wouldn’t fit with my nutritional goals, and deep frying my food was definitely not going to work. After some research, I discovered something that turned out to be a game changer. The answer to the flavor problem is seasonings!

I realized that there was a whole world of spices and seasonings out there that could transform my sad dishes and have them bursting with flavor! But there were still a couple of problems.

The Problem With Other Seasonings

While they can add flavor to your meal, a lot of seasonings out there have a pretty poor nutritional profile. Most of them have one or more of the following:

-Too much sugar

-Extra calories from fat

-They’re high in sodium

-Ingredients that are hazardous to your health, like MSG

Sure, these seasonings are designed with taste in mind, but they aren’t concerned about your health, or your fitness & nutritional goals!

Imagine taking the time to calculate your macros, create a meal plan, and put in hours of prep time, just to negate the nutritional benefits of your meal by dousing it with an unhealthy seasoning.

Who wants to do that? Not me!

There are a few healthier options, but most of them come up short in the taste department and are just as uninteresting as the food they’re supposed to enhance.
