What are some good seasonings to use with fruits and veggies?
Herbs, spices and citrus to add mouth-watering flavors to fruits and vegetables with the bonus of extra antioxidants! Best of all, you won’t add any extra calories, fat, sodium or sugar.
You can purchase fresh herbs at your supermarket year-round or grow your own herbs in warmer weather. Dried herbs will impart a slightly different flavor and are great to use too. Ground spices are convenient and you can also try whole spices that you can grate as needed.
