The Problem: You’re bored of the same old snacks and meals — how do you get out of your cooking rut?
The Hack: Get adventurous with flavours and unique food combinations. These seemingly odd pairings work well together. Are you brave enough to try them?
• Hamburgers and peanut butter: You’ve had peanut sauces on meat stir-fries, so skip the ketchup and mustard for a smear of peanut butter on your burger!
• Sliced strawberries added to a Caprese salad: Strawberries pair so well with an aged balsamic vinegar, buffalo mozzarella cheese and ripe tomatoes.
• Quinoa and yogurt: Swap sugary granola, which is also high in fat and calories, for cooked whole grain quinoa in your morning yogurt. It’ll give you a crunch with a ton of fibre, iron and protein and none of the sugar or fat.
• Avocado and chocolate: As a healthy fat, avocado can replace some of the oil, butter, shortening or cream in puddings, mousses and brownies.
• Pure olive oil and ice cream: Olive oil gelato is popular in Italy. Elevate your plain vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt with a drizzle of EVOO!
