Use of Spices and Herbs
No More Sugar
Reduce or eliminate sugar by using sweet-tasting spices such as Allspice, Anise, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger, Mace, and Nutmeg.
Say No to Salt
Use spices that are strong to replace the taste of salt. For example, add black pepper, ginger, coriander, garlic powder, curry powder, cumin, dill seeds, or basil. Do not add salt when cooking pasta. Instead, add basil, oregano, and parsley. Use fresh garlic or powdered garlic and onion without salt.
Substitute Flavor for Fat
Remove the extra fat from chicken, meat, soup and other fried food. Removing a tablespoon of fat removes about 10 grams of fat and 100 calories. Add herbs to your dishes to increase the flavor.
