Cutting back on salt…….

Add a splash of olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice close to the end of cooking time or to cooked vegetables – it can enhance flavors in the same way as salt.

Rice it up……..

To kick up the flavor your rice dish, heat one tablespoon of extra light olive oil in a pot and sauté one tablespoon of garlic for two minutes. Add the rice and sauté until lightly browned. Cook the rice according to package directions, adding vegetable broth instead of water for flavor. Another way is to add a little fresh lemon juice to the rice as it cooks, this also helps the rice not to clump.
