3 Best Tricks To Make Healthy Food Taste

Struggling to prepare healthy meals that not only are kind to your waistline, but also taste good on your fork? You’re not alone. Many home cooks have a tough time figuring out how to make healthy food taste delicious. 

1-Roast vegetables

Many people hate the taste of super-healthy veggies, such as beets. But you can still learn to love them — and benefit from their nutritious makeup — by learning the right way to prepare them. Women’s Health learned chefs mellow or balance out the less pleasant flavors of beets by roasting them. Just cut off the leaves and stem. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and bake them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for at least half an hour. Then, peel and serve with mustard. Roasting works great with other veggies, too. Most just need to be tossed with a bit of oil.

2- Add salt, instead of sugar, to your coffee or tea

For a healthier caffeine kick each morning, you probably try to minimize the amount of sugar you mix into your coffee or tea. But Greatist learned some chefs recommend foregoing the sugar altogether — and trying a dash of sea salt instead. The salt intensifies the taste of your favorite tea or coffee. And it might bring out subtle flavors you hadn’t even noticed in past cups. Plus, it neutralizes any bitterness, without the extra calories like sugar does.

3-Try a blended salt to add flavor to your meals

Another great use of salt when you’re preparing a healthy meal?  Good Housekeeping learned many chefs use blended salts to add complexity to flavors and help them complement one another. The principle applies whether you’re cooking something that’s high in calories and fat or a light meal with lean meat and healthy sides. So how do you try it? “Salt blends are made by adding a ground spice or herb, such as coriander or rosemary, to a base salt.” You can even “wake up” stale spices by toasting them in a dry pan prior to using them.
