One of the easiest ways to give a dish a nutritional boost is to make it colourful 💛💚❤, which was what I did to last night's pasta dinner. Instead of just having noodles, sauce, and low-fat turkey meatballs (Btw, each of those balls were 60 g), I added two types of squash (zucchini and butternut) and added hearty brown bella mushrooms.
I not only added volume the dish, I brought the carb count down by not just having as much pasta, I added fiber and nutrients such as zinc, Vitamin C, and an really good dose of Vitamin A (which is really good for skin health), B Vitamins, and potassium. 🔸️Nutritious food doesn't have to be boring. 👉So next time you are cooking, add a splash of nutritious colour to your food. Think bright reds, orange, deep reds, and greens. 👌
Here are just a few: 🔸️Colourful 🍅🥒🌶🍆🍊 🌶veggies: tomatoes, peppers, squashes, broccoli, eggplant, spinach, kale, arugala, cabbages, radicchio, Brussels sprouts, onions, garlic, etc. 🔸️Mushrooms 🍄: cremini, oyster, shitaki, chantrelle 🔸️Herbs: cilantro, parsley, oregano, rosemary, thyme 🔸️Spices: cinnamon, cayenne, ginger, mustard, coriander
