Enticing Nutrition: Delicious, Desirable, Better-For-You
Making delicious meals for the whole family is easier than you think.
Want to create better mealtimes for you and your family but think they won’t be happy with “health food”? We’ve got some simple tips and tricks to help boost nutrition and flavor in delicious, desirable dishes that your whole household will love. Try these easy techniques in your everyday meal routines:
Enjoy your food, but control portions
Limit portion size and maintain flavor by using smaller plates (like an appetizer or salad plate instead of entrée size). Try out this method for your next dessert by serving a ½ cup scoop of Breyers® Natural Vanilla in a small bowl for a portion-controlled treat.
Use More Nutritious cooking methods
Roasting, baking, grilling, steaming and poaching are great ways to cook your food and maintain full flavor without adding unnecessary calories.
With this Spinach & Almond-Crusted Chicken recipe you can bake the chicken instead of frying for delicious juicy chicken that everyone is bound to love. Not only does it taste delicious, but provides better for you fats such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats from Hellmann’s® Mayonnaise.
Choose spreads with no trans fats
Limit your family’s intake of fats from butter and shortening by substituting in a spread that is made from vegetable oil instead.
Seek out lower sodium
By quickly comparing Nutrition Facts Panels on your packaged food, you can easily reduce the sodium in your family’s dishes. Another easy option; look for reduced-sodium substitutes to usual ingredients.
This Jerk Rubbed Pork Tenderloin kicks up the flavor with plenty of spices like allspice, cinnamon, garlic powder and Knorr® Reduced Sodium Chicken flavor Bouillon cube.
Add color and flavor with fruits and veggies
The more variety you add to your plate, the better! Each color offers different nutrients and creates an attractive and tasty dish.
There are tons of fruits and veggies that you can choose from when grilling up some delicious skewers such as bell peppers, zucchini and pineapple in this Cilantro-Lime Pineapple Chicken Skewers.
Beets and oranges are great options as well and can really liven up a salad like this Lentil Citrus Salad With Goat Cheese.
Decide On Smart Drinks
You may get tired of drinking water every meal, but if you’re sticking to soda, you may be getting more sugar and calories than you need.
Try sipping Lipton® Unsweetened Ice Tea with your meals. It’s a refreshing, great-tasting drink that’s just as hydrating as water and has no calories!
