Adding Flavor To Meals Without Adding Macros

Just because you want to eat healthy doesn't mean you have to sacrifice taste and flavor. It's actually the opposite. You should have beautiful and tasty food. How else would you stick to a nutritional program? Instead of a recipe this week I'm going to give you some ideas of ingredients you can add to your meals to add some extra flavor. Check the labels of everything you get to make sure they fit within your plan. Most of the listed items won't hurt your macros too much but can provide some MAJOR flavor and texture!
