Low-cal and inexpensive way to keep your taste buds interested

Adding a pinch of feta is a delicious and low-cal way to add salt and tang to salads. Combine 1/2 cup of sliced cherry tomatoes with one ounce of feta and a splash of olive oil for a filling, delicious snack. Nut butters are low-cal and can replace added sugar and fat. Besides being delicious, they are also a great source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

Fills in flavor gaps

In the case of dieters, herbs are great for filling flavor gaps when recipes are reduced in quantity. They add flavor to vegetables, and lift their bland flavors. In general, meals that are bursting with flavor tend to taste more satisfying and satisfy fewer calories. As a result, dieters should flavor generously. Slowing down to eat a meal may surprise them as to how little they need to eat to feel full.

Helps control blood sugar and insulin activity

If you suffer from type I diabetes, it's important to control your blood sugar levels at all times. Blood sugar levels fluctuate throughout a typical 24 hour period, and in some people, they drop significantly while sleeping. A small snack before bed can help manage these fluctuations and ensure a balanced blood sugar level. Other factors that can cause blood sugar levels to fluctuate include hormones and changes in insulin activity. For those who want to know how much glucose their bodies are utilizing throughout the day, a continuous glucose monitor may be necessary.

Before and after exercising, check your blood glucose level. Try to exercise one to three hours after a meal or snack. If you're going to a high-intensity workout, consider eating a snack that will boost your blood sugar level. Exercises that are too strenuous or too long may result in a higher risk of hypoglycemia. To make sure you don't end up with hypoglycemia, eat a small snack before and after exercising to ensure your blood sugar level stays stable.

Fills in texture gaps

Herbs can lift and fill the flavours of your meals, even if you don't use much of them in the recipes. Adding more herbs to your meals will give you a wider variety of health benefits, as well as a more varied range of looks and tastes. This means you'll be eating more veggies and fruits, and reaping the health benefits of all of them!
