Spice is nice! New flavour combos can kick up the taste in your usual fare.


WEEK 4: TRY SOMETHING NEW!

Think healthy eating is bland? No way! Healthy eating tastes great! Keep it interesting: get creative with cooking strategies, experiment with new foods and flavours and refresh your recipes.

Give new life to a favourite food! Experiment with these mouth-watering flavour boosters:

  • Red pepper flakes deliver delicious heat to lightly sautéed fresh or frozen greens.
  • Grainy mustard and lemon adds tangy freshness to fish, like cod.
  • A dash of nutmeg is neat on carrots, butternut squash and parsnips.
  • Curry livens up lentil soup and makes a tofu-and-veggie stir-fry sizzle.
  • Cinnamon pairs sweetly with apples, pears and sweet potatoes.
