However, if you marinate that chicken breast with herbs and spices, the taste can change significantly, and be much more fun.
The feeling has been that nutritious food is tasteless, bland and even off-putting for some time. We both know a salad is healthier for us than a hamburger, so we're opting for the burger because it's got more flavor-or so the idea goes anyway. But there is no explanation why this would be the case. Any meal will become more exciting by adding a little seasoning.
There will always be people keen to point out that although a grilled chicken breast may contain fewer calories from a fried chicken outlet than a family bucket, it doesn't taste as good. So while that's an opinion issue, the truth of the matter is that opinions matter. Nonetheless, if you marinate the chicken breast with herbs and spices, the flavor will improve dramatically and be even more fun.
In your sandwiches, you can get bored with eating tuna salad while tuna is far from tasteless. Yet if you add a little flavor as you make the tuna mix, you can note that there are a variety of different flavors in the form of calories that contribute very little, if anything. Paprika, garlic, cayenne ...... the list continues. Adding a few chopped jalapenos could make it even more interesting.
