It is a common myth that healthy food is boring. We think of fit food and an image of pale green salad comes to our minds. Mostly the food we love is high in calorie value and stripped of all the fattening ingredients, the food doesn't really appeal to us. This is one of the reasons why people can't stick to their diets: the lack of taste. However, there are certain ways you can add that certain zest to healthy food to make it more enticing. Here are some of the ways you can do that
 
Try out new products
We usually have our brand and product loyalties but it doesn't hurt to venture out of your comfort zone once in a while. Next time you go to the supermarket, try a new product. Read the labels and ingredients to know what exactly you are consuming and how you can get something better. Take their new diet flavours or the fat-free cheese. You don't know when you end up with something that works out well for you.
 
Spice it up
Bland food can be given a whole new taste when you add spices. Whether it is pepper or oregano or chilli flakes, your taste buds will definitely thank you for it. Especially as an Indian, one loves spicy food. You don't have to deprive yourself of the zing and zest if you're on a diet.
 
Make it fruity
Fruits are tasty, healthy and refreshing. Whether it is a bowl of oats or yoghurt, adding fruits will make it taste so much better. Bananas, oranges and apples are fruits which serve as great additions. This is a good tip for all those who can't eat fruits raw as well. 
 
Do your salad different
Mostly Indian salads made at home consist only of carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes and radishes. The best part about salads is that there are no specific rules about what you can add or not add. Innovate with your dish. Mix broccoli, beans, beetroot, asparagus, sprouts, capsicums, eggplants, lettuce and all kinds of vegetables you can get your hands on. It may result in something unique and delicious.
 
Cook it your way
Consuming your veggies and fruits fresh and raw is a healthy habit but you don't have to suffer through the ordeal if you don't like it. Roast those beans, steam the leafy greens and sprinkle some masala over the grilled peas. Unless oil is involved, there will be no addition of calories or fat to your food.
 
Juicing is always better
No matter how healthy karela is, no one likes to consume it whether raw or cooked. Most people do drink karela juice though which brings us to the point that juices are easier, tastier and more convenient alternatives to eating the vegetables and fruits raw. One can also mix juices for a different taste.
 
Make it saucy
Sauces have little to no calories, fat or unhealthy elements. Add mayonnaise, tomato ketchup, mustard or literally any sauce of your choice to add the required zing to the food. Sauces complement vegetables nicely and are convenient as well.
