How to flavour your meals and still eat for success

Eating healthy and tasty

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!
