Simple, whole foods--without prominent packaging or tedious ingredient lists--are the mainstays of a healthy diet. Mail-order meals and dieting plans are honorable options, if that works for you, but remember there is always the opportunity to explore healthy eating with fresh foods and a few flavorful and natural condiments. Litehouse Foods Dressings and Instantly Fresh Herbs compliment my family’s healthy lifestyle and are becoming my go-to seasonings for fresh, natural ingredients.
Vinaigrette & Dill-Tossed Baby Dutch Potatoes
Consider parsley. Its fresh taste is unparalleled as a seasoning for fish. Now contemplate your favorite type of fish. Is it the mild, clean taste of white fish like cod and halibut or do you prefer the nutty taste of salmon? Whatever fish you choose to grill, broil, or roast, there is a Litehouse Instantly Fresh Herbs or Pourable Dressing to enhance its natural flavors. My family and I enjoy fresh rainbow trout, a sweet-fleshed fish that needs only light seasoning to highlight its mild flavor. Some fish, like tuna, can stand up to bold seasonings, but rainbow trout is best, I think, with flavors that quietly boost the sweet, clean taste of this trout. Citrus flavors, specifically lemon and orange, are classic seafood-seasoning partners. Vinegar, another flavor compatible with fish (think fish and chips with malt vinegar), provides a pleasing tang to mild-tasting seafood. Both of these flavors combine nicely in Litehouse’s Tangy Orange Citrus Dressing—a marvelous marinade and seasoning for roasted rainbow trout. Just salt, pepper, Litehouse’s Tangy Orange Citrus Dressing, and Instantly Fresh Parsley are all that is needed for a tasty trout entrée. Litehouse Pourable Dressings are versatile, too, for flavoring various side dishes. I tried Litehouse Red Wine Olive Oil Vinaigrette (rather than butter or even olive oil) with yellow baby Dutch potatoes. I steamed the potatoes and added a touch of salt, white pepper, and Instantly Fresh Dill. Until recently, using a vinaigrette dressing to flavor a side dish meant using it only with green beans. Now, with all the flavors available in Litehouse Dressing, I am encouraged to challenge myself by finding flavor partners for many other types of vegetables—and even for fruits. Eating fresh, whole food as part of a commitment to healthy living is an attainable and sustainable goal. Get the freshest foods you can find and are passionate about, and employ flavorful and equally fresh seasonings, dressings, and marinades to flavor and enhance your food. I choose Litehouse Instantly Fresh Herbs and Dressings.
