The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:
- Opt for a high-heat cooking technique (broiling, grilling or pan-searing), which brown meat and fish and add flavor.
- Pop vegetables into the oven and roast at 450 degrees to make them sweeter and smokier. First brush them with a little oil and season with herbs.
- Slice onions and caramelize them by cooking them over low heat slowly in a small amount of oil.
- Use brightly-colored peppers or a little hot pepper sauce to spice up your meals.
- Use the juice or zest from citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons or limes, or boldly-flavored accents such as cilantro, pomegranate seeds or chipotle peppers.
- Add condiments such as wasabi, chutney, tapenade, salsa, horseradish or flavored mustard.
