What Are Some Saucy Ways To Dress Up Meals For Monkeys?
Having a diet heavy in vegetables, but low in fat may seem bland if you donâ€™t get creative with sauces. Flavor is a huge part of cooking and eating, so if you are a custom to just using the basic lemon juice or balsamic vinegar to add flavor to your dishes, then you may soon find it hard to stick to your Monkey Diet. Itâ€™s time to explore the hundreds of flavors out there you can use!
How about a fruity way to add flavor to your next tofu dish? Mix equal parts of apple cider vinegar and cranberry juice with enough salt just to add the right flavor. Then marinade tofuâ€¦or anything else you want to try. Donâ€™t marinade for more than 30 minutes with the tofu, then cook as desired. Other protein course such as fish or chicken can stand to be in the sauce a little longer.
Honey Yogurt Dressing
This can be a simple 2 ingredient dressing or you can jazz it up. Mix some honey in with nonfat plain yogurt and drizzle over salad or vegetable dish. To be more exotic puree some strawberries with balsamic vinegar along with the honey and yogurt!
Citrus Avocado Sauce
Monkeys have to watch their fat so with this you just have to go easy on the avocado. Mash up about 1/3 of an avocado per person and then pour in a tiny amount of orange juice and lemon peel. Add a little bit of chopped garlic and pinch of salt. This is great on vegetables or fish.
Monkeys may not be able to splurge with the oils or cream sauces, but that doesnâ€™t mean there has to be a lack in flavor. Keep changing up your meals and youâ€™ll be able to stay on course to good health.
