An add-on to your dish

As a clever eater, you may have already stocked up on veggies, fruits, whole grains, fish, lean meat, olive oil, and nuts - great job! To take your healthy dish to the next level, let me share some of my secrets that involve adding healthful foods to your kitchen.

Beef broth is an excellent ingredient to add to your cooking, but many people need to buy or make it. Chicken broth is commonly used at home, but beef broth (stock) adds much more flavor. Mushroom stock is an excellent option for vegetarians. Use any broth for cooking brown rice, braise cuts of beef, pork, or poultry, or moisten leftovers. For four hours, you can make your stock by roasting leftover beef bones and simmering them with onions, celery, and herbs. Boxed stocks are available in low sodium, organic versions, and fat-free.

Dijon mustard is a slightly more flavorful alternative to classic yellow mustard. Mix it with olive oil, vinegar, and lemon juice to create a salad dressing, or combine it with honey and plain yogurt for a tangy vegetable dip.

Ground turkey is a healthier alternative to ground beef, with slightly higher protein content. Consider using antibiotic-free ground turkey, which intensifies the flavor of other foods more readily than ground beef.

Hot sauces are high-octane condiments that contain chili or cayenne peppers, vinegar, and salt. Capsaicin, a compound in chili peppers, is anti-inflammatory and may support weight loss. Hot sauce is easy to add to many dishes, including scrambled eggs, stir-fries, or bland-tasting foods.

Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus, which are crucial for bone health. It is also lower in fat and higher in protein than other cheeses and is nearly lactose-free. Parmigiano-Reggiano has a sharp, nutty flavor that goes well with all vegetables, fresh salads, and bean dishes.
