Dr. Oz Shares Flavor Guide with Dieters

Spices turn mundane food into fundane food

Does dieting mean bland meals? It can be, but with Dr. Oz’s recommended flavor guide, dieters can put zip into their meals just by adding a little creativity to those low-cal food diets. Plus, a reminder about Dr. Oz’s 2 Week Rapid Weight Loss Diet.


One of the problems with dieting is that it can become a boring gastronomical rut when you eat the same healthy meals every week. But it doesn’t have to be that way. According to advice from Dr. Oz The Good Life, you can spark up your meals with the following add-ins from their “Eat-This-With-That Flavor Guide.”

Flavor Guide Tip #1: Use common fresh herbs to add more flavor to your food.

• Cilantro on scrambled eggs
• Dill on a salad with roasted salmon
• Parsley or basil on roasted veggies
• Mint on your summer fruit salads
• Rosemary after cooking on roasted potatoes

Flavor Guide Tip #2: Experiment with atypical spices on typical foods.

• Red pepper flakes on sautéed broccoli
• Ground cloves in oatmeal
• Ground cinnamon in chili
• Smoked paprika on stewed veggies or on sautéed shrimp
• Cardamom in quinoa

Special Note: Just a dash of finely grated cardamom added to your coffee with two dashes of hazelnut can also liven up your favorite beverage that may have stalled on you lately. In addition, here are 3 Coffee Choices that won't add inches to your waist.
