However, if you marinate that chicken breast with herbs and spices, the taste can change significantly, and be much more fun.
It's been an impression for some time that healthy food is tasteless, boring and even off-putting. We all know a salad is better for us than a hamburger, but we're going for the burger because it's got more taste-or so the theory goes anyway. But there is no reason that this needs to be the case. With the addition of a little spice, any food can become more interesting.
In your sandwiches, you may get bored with eating tuna salad although tuna is far from tasteless. But if you add a little spice when you make the tuna mix, you will find that there are a range of different tastes in the way of calories that add very little, if anything. Paprika, pepper, cayenne ...... the list continues. The addition of some chopped jalapenos, if you have the stomach for them, can make it even more interesting. And the bottles of sauce on supermarket shelves these days go beyond steak sauce and ketchup – additions such as piri-piri and teriyaki are a welcome break from the norm.
