5 Ways to Add Flavour To Your Next Meal

5 Ways to Add Flavour To Your Next Meal

Did you know that the way you smell and taste your food can influence your appetite? Yeah, it’s crazy but true. There are so many factors that come into play when it comes to how we eat. Some of these factors are even outside of our control. For example, if we eat at a restaurant that has an overpowering aroma or if there is something in the air that causes people to eat more than usual, chances are other people will start eating like that too. But don’t worry, there are ways we can help tame these pesky urges and enjoy our meals without feeling Guilty! Here are 5 fast and easy ways you can add flavour to any meal.

Add fresh herbs and spices

Fresh herbs and spices add an abundance of flavour to any meal, making it taste even better. Herbs like basil, cilantro, sage, and thyme can be easily added to pasta, vegetables, eggs, salads, sandwiches, soups, and more. Spices like turmeric, cinnamon, and cayenne can be added to breakfast cereals, oatmeal, hot beverages, or protein-rich foods like eggs, meat, or fish. You can also keep a variety of fresh herbs and spices on hand to easily add flavour to any meal. They are inexpensive, easy to store, and take up little space. Plus, they don’t expire and can be used over and over again.

Cook with citrus

Cutting up fresh citrus fruits can be a great way to add flavour to your meals. Lemons, limes, oranges, and even grapefruit are great for making beverages, adding a refreshing taste to salads, and making marinades for meat and fish. They are also great for adding a nice tang to summery desserts like crumbles and sorbets. Citrus fruits can also be used in cooking. Slices of oranges and lemons can be added to a pot of water to make a fresh and tasty cup of tea. And grapefruit can be used to make grapefruit water, a great way to add a bit of vitamin C to your diet.

Smell your food while it’s cooking

This is a bit of a stretch, but it really adds a lot to the taste of your food. The smell of your food as it cooks gives your taste buds a bit of a push to start identifying the smell of your food. This is why it’s so important to have fresh ingredients. If you have a nice smell going on, chances are you will start to taste it. So keep an eye on your food, stir it around every so often and smell it! You might be surprised at how much you’re enjoying your meal.

Have a drink or two before dinner

There is nothing like a few drinks to really get your taste buds going and make the rest of dinner taste a lot better. Wine and cocktails are great ways to add flavour to many different dishes. Try adding some citrus flavours to a cocktail to really round out your meal. Beer, spirits, and even sparkling water can be used to add flavour to many different meals.

Bundle up when you sit down to eat

Cold foods are a great way to add flavour. When eating foods like meats, fish, veggies, and fruits, try to keep them cold. This will help slow down the rate of your mouth heating the food, so you get a bit more time to enjoy the flavours.


There are so many things that come into play when it comes to how we eat, from the food itself to the environment around us. Luckily, there are also ways we can help tame these pesky urges and enjoy our meals without feeling Guilty! For example, adding fresh herbs and spices like fresh herbs, cinnamon, and citrus fruits can help tame the urge to overeat. Cooking with citrus fruits can also help add a nice tang to your meals. Smelling your food as it’s cooking and having a drink or two before dinner can also help ease your appetite. These are just a few of the ways you can add flavour to your meals to help tame your appetite. And don’t forget, eating healthy doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a nice meal or two every now and again.
