There has been an idea for some time that nutritious food is tasteless, bland, and even off-putting. We both know that a salad is healthier for us than a hamburger, so we're heading to a burger because it has more flavor – or so the idea goes, anyway. But there is no explanation why this should be the case. With the addition of a little seasoning, every kind of food will become more exciting. People will still be keen to find out that, while a grilled chicken breast may contain less calories than a family bucket from a fried chicken store, it does not taste as well. And although this is a matter of belief, the irony of the matter is that opinions matter.

You can get bored eating tuna salad in your sandwiches, even though tuna is far from tasteless. But if you add a little flavor when you make a blend of tuna, you'll find that there's a lot of different flavors that add very little, if anything, to calories. The garlic, the garlic, the cayenne ... the list goes on. The addition of some jalapenos can make it even more interesting if you have the appetite for them. And these days, the bottles of sauce on the store shelf go beyond steak sauce and ketchup — additions like piri-piri and teriyaki are a nice change from the standard.
