Trying to make healthy choices but getting tired of the same flavors? As a registered dietitian nutritionist at Indiana University Health, I work with bariatric patients to help them lose weight in preparation for surgery. In addition to being followed by a team, patients also receive individualized nutrition counseling post-operatively. We work together to identify barriers and solutions throughout their weight loss journey.
One simple way to slim down: Swap out heavy sauces and condiments for spices to cut fat, sugar, and calories – without sacrificing flavor. You’ll also sneak in some added health benefits from more nutrients. Studies show that spices and herbs that are rich in antioxidants can decrease risk for chronic disease. They can also act as a base flavor for soups or add extra complexity to a dish.
Similar to fruits and vegetables, strive to consume a variety of herbs and spices in order to reap their many health benefits.
