Spice Is The Variety Of Life

There's been an assumption for some time that nutritious food is tasteless, bland, and even off-putting. We all know that a salad is healthier for us than a burger, so we're opting for a burger because it has more flavor – or so the idea goes, anyway. Yet there is no justification for that to be the case. With the addition of a little spice, any food can become more interesting.

People will always be keen to point out that, while a grilled chicken breast can contain fewer calories than a family bucket from a fried chicken outlet, it does not taste as good. And although this is a matter of belief, the fact of the matter is that expectations matter. However, if you marinate the chicken breast with herbs and spices, the taste can change considerably and be a lot more enjoyable.
For your sandwiches, you can get bored with eating tuna salad, though the tuna is far from tasteless. Yet if you add a little seasoning when you make the tuna mix, you can find that there are a variety of different tastes in the way of calories that contribute very little if anything. The list goes on: Paprika, pepper, cayenne... Including some chopped jalapenos, if you have the appetite for them, will make it even more interesting. And the bottles of sauce on the supermarket shelves these days go beyond steak sauce and ketchup – additions such as piri-piri and teriyaki are a welcome break from the usual.
