When we went on holiday to Vietnam I discovered fresh spring rolls. They were amazing. I had never seen them before. The only spring rolls I have ever experienced are deep fried. Deep fat frying is out of the question for me because of my diet for MS recovery. I thought my days of eating spring rolls were over. Now I have discovered the fresh version, I realise it has just begun!
In Vietnam the combination of flavours in the fresh spring rolls was amazing. Often filled with raw cucumber, carrot and onion they were seasoned with chilli, mint and coriander and then sprinkled with sesame seeds.
It got me thinking about how important flavours are. For those of us on diets that limit processed and fatty foods there is a constant search for new experiences. Focusing on flavours is a really good direction to go in.
Seasoning really can make all the difference to the food you eat. It can turn the simplest and healthiest of salads into a true taste sensation. So if you are trying to eat well try putting some thought into the way you season your food.
If you are seeking to loose weight then turning your attention to the flavours you eat is a really smart move. You really can get satisfaction from your eating when you fully appreciate the taste of everything you eat.
Martyn, my husband, surprised me with this plate of fresh spring rolls when I finished work the other day. So as well as spicing up tea time it gave our relationship a boost too. It was such a thoughtful thing to do and I really appreciated it.
