How to flavour your meals and still eat for success


Has to be one of the trickier parts to get right initially


And it’s incredibly underrated, there’s only so many boring meals you can have in a week


Better to create meals you’ll love and enjoy sticking to so you can stick to it for good


I have recently posted some flavour combos which had great feedback so I thought I’d add some more ideas 


There’s are simple and can make your healthy meals pop with flavour


Italian: oregano, basil, fennel, capers, anchovies, olives, orange


Classic herb combinations are the mainstay of Italian food, oregano, basil, parsley, rosemary, the list goes on


If you’re looking to add a bit of bite and saltiness to a dish, capers or anchovies can be a great choice


Orange sounds like a strange one, but orange and fennel, with some herbs can be delicious!


Mexican: coriander, cumin, chilli, lime


Keep it simple with the mexican, coriander and cumin are great, a couple of teaspoons of each in a 500g mince mix is great


Coriander goes really well as a garnish (as long as you don’t think it tastes like soap!) 


Fresh chilli and lime!


Thai: coriander, mint, basil, ginger, lime, chilli, lemongrass


Curries and fresh stir frys are the go with Thai food


Don’t stress out with your curries as they’re meant to be a little more watery than indian curries!


A good quality curry paste doesn’t go astray either


Moroccan: cardamon, saffron, cinnamon, anise, cayenne, cumin, lemon


My absolute favourite, slow cooked meats, light spices, lemon in everything


There’s a lot to like about Moroccan, and although not authentic I always have pre-mixed moroccan spice in the cupboard to add to roasted meats when pushed for time


Indian: cumin, coriander, turmeric, curry powder, ginger, curry leaf


Make an Indian curry from scratch at least once in your life! 


In the slow cooker it’s actually a lot easier than you’d think and it’ll taste amazing


Spanish: smoked paprika, parsley, bay leaf, peppers, olives, orange


A bit like moroccan, also one of my favourites


Spanish food, has a wide range of flavours with influences from Africa and Europe


Keep these combos in your arsenal and you’ll never go boring again!
