Never give up on flavour. Flavour adds nutrients to your body and pleasure to your soul! Instead of using cheese sauces, cream, butter and mayonnaise, try these ideas that will boost your health.
Sauces, Flavourings and Toppings
Great with meat, tofu, sweet potatoes, and scrambled eggs. Sauerkraut is also great for gut and digestive health.
Use with NuPasta (or pasta substitute), spiralized zucchini or sweet potato, cook on chicken, mix into rice, cook with sauteed mushrooms, mix into a bean salad or chopped mixed veggies.
Try on different meats, tofu (especially diijon mustard), or add a burst of flavour in salad dressings.
Great on sweet potatoes, on brown rice, with quinoa, or as a simple snack on a rice cake. Enjoy it in a salad, or as a salad dressing. An excellent way to get more protein in your daily diet.
5. Plain Greek Yogurt
Use as a sour cream substitute for dips, veggies, with meats, or on sweet potatoes. Mix with cocoa and honey or stevia to make a sweet treat. Mix with minced garlic and fresh dill for a dip to remember! This food is packed with protein.
Low calorie and great on meat, eggs, and sweet potatoes. Mix in with rice or quinoa. Add to a salad with Greek yogurt and ground chicken or tofu to make a taco salad.
My favourite zero sugar, zero calorie sweetener that can be used on and in any food creation. I buy it at the health food store in powdered version just like sugar. Use on plain yogurt, oatmeal, in baking, in smoothies, or in coffee or tea. Stevia is also great combined with cinnamon, mint extract or cocoa.
8. Honey & Natural Maple Syrup
Drizzled on a sliced apple, or on a rice cake covered in natural nut butter. Use in baking. Sweeten coffee or tea. Raw honey is a natural antibiotic and immune booster. Drizzle on oatmeal. Drizzle on fish or meats prior to cooking for extra flavour. Use in moderation.
9. Natural Peanut Butter
Make a thai peanut sauce or as a dip for sliced apples.
Mash it into a creamy sauce and add seasonings. Spread on a rice cake for a snack. Slice and serve with fish, salad, or eggs. Use as an oil substitute in baking.
12. Olive Oil and Vinegar
Use to add flavour to raw or roasted veggies, cucumber, salads and meats. I love a drizzle of vinegar on a sliced avocado. Use in your dressings and sauces.
