Flavor Tips for dieters who are tired of bland food, and a great summer addition to any grilled chicken

Healthy eating need not be boring

For many people, the thought of going on a diet is a daunting task.  Not just because they fear depriving themselves their favorite food; but for some the thought of bland, boring meals seems too much to overcome.

One way to prevent this is to investigate low-calorie, flavorfull garnishes for main courses that take the dieter to places not seen everyday.  Most are very low calorie, very high results in flavor. 

For example:

Say you’re having a grilled chicken breast with a vegetable side for dinner.  Healthy, sure, but not the most tantilizing flavor experience.  Mix up a quick Mango Salsa to top the chicken.  Prep takes about 10 – 15 minutes and the remaining Salsa keeps for up to 5 days in the fridge.  This tangy diversion also works well to jazz-up Pork or Fish.

1 Mango peeled and cut into 1/4 ” pieces

1 Red, Yellow or Orange Sweet Bell Pepper also cut in 1/4 pieces

1/2 Large Red Onion chopped

2 small Roma Tomatoes

3 Tablespoons Lime Juice

1/2 Cup chopped Cilantro

1 – 5 dashes of Tobasco (if desired)

Combine all ingredients in a medium glass bowl and let sit for at least 20 minutes, stir before topping the meat with the Salsa.  ENJOY!!
