Ever experienced diet boredom? Well, adding herbs and spices is the easiest and healthiest way to make your skinless, boneless chicken breast that much more exciting.
"What's more, many herbs and spices provide health benefits like weight loss, fighting inflammation, lowering blood sugar and cholesterol and even fighting dementia," says Karen Ansel, RDN, CDN, a nutrition consultant based in Long Island, New York. "Using them in place of salt can also boost your heart health and lower your risk of stroke," she says.
There is no magic-bullet herb or spice to help you drop 10 pounds (sigh), but some offer unique slim-down benefits, like slightly boosting your metabolism, helping ward off hunger or balancing your blood sugar levels.
