Flavour doesn't have to come from fat, sugar or salt — there are plenty of healthy ways to ex­cite your taste buds

Gin­ger

It has been ac­claimed for hav­ing an­tiox­i­dant prop­er­ties and the abil­ity to pre­vent nau­sea, but nu­tri­tion aside — gin­ger is plain de­li­cious! add this bold flavour to a stir-fry, or pair it with chicken or fish, and you’ll have happy tum­mies all around the table.

Cit­rus

Brim­ming over with vi­ta­min C to pro­mote im­mu­nity, cit­rus adds a nu­tri­tious and de­li­cious twist to any meal. di­vide an orange into seg­ments and toss it through a fresh salad, bake fish in a bag with le­mon slices, or squeeze lime on your stir-fry for burst of flavour.

Za’atar

This pun­gent Mid­dle East­ern blend of herbs, spices and sesame seeds can re­ally help trans­form a savoury dish. as a bonus, the herbs in za’atar add a dose of im­mu­nity-boost­ing an­tiox­i­dants to your meal.

Dukkah

This tra­di­tional Egyp­tian mix is made from nuts, seeds and var­i­ous spices, so it’s packed with heart-healthy fats. use dukkah as a crunchy coat­ing for chicken or fish, or sprin­kle it over your poached eggs for break­fast.

bal­samic vine­gar

A driz­zle of bal­samic vine­gar has less than 50kJ (12cal), and some stud­ies show it can help man­age blood sugar lev­els. toss it through root veg­eta­bles be­fore roast­ing, or pair it with ex­tra-vir­gin olive oil as a diy sub­sti­tute for store-bought salad dress­ing.
