Boredom and burnout with eating the same foods over and over again is something that everyone faces from time to time.
I’m here to help you overcome both of these pitfalls.
By using these 5 meal prep modifications you will find your food to be exciting again.
You can do this!
Tip 1: Herbs ~ Fresh herbs and micro-greens not only add beautiful color but can also make a meal taste and look vibrant and fresh. These are some of my favs.
Tip 2: Pickled and Fermented Foods ~ Adding pickled or fermented veggies not only adds tons of flavor but also provides many health benefits such as anti-microbial, heart health benefits, and positive health benefits for diabetics. (Gut Health Bonus). These are some of my favorites.
- Pickled Spicy Cucumbers
- Pickled Ginger
- Pickled Red Onion
- Pickled Radish
- Pickled Sweet Peppers
- Jalapeno Peppers
- Roasted Garlic
Tip 3: Seeds ~ Add something crunchy like sesame seeds or pepitas. This addition of texture might be just what you need to take a dish from oh well to awesome. Plus seeds are a good source of healthful oils, magnesium, and other nutrients that enhance the health of the heart, bones, and other functions. They are also considered excellent sources of potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
Tip 4: Spices ~ Adding a dash of one or more of these spices will give any meal a zest twist taking it from boring to BAM.
- Sea Salt
- Black Pepper
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
- Cumin, Ground
- Dried Oregano
- Dried Parsley
- Chile Powder
- Red Pepper Flakes
Tip 5: Citrus ~ Squeezing fresh lemon on your dish will give it a fresh pop and add a kick of finishing flavor, helping to brighten up any dish.
