Spice up your comfort foods Cutting out fatty foods completely is a non-option for most of us. Instead, add two tablespoons of spices, like black pepper, garlic powder, rosemary, paprika, or oregano, to your next fatty indulgence. "The Journal of Nutrition" reports that those who incorporated spices into their fat-laden meals had 30 percent lower levels of triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood) than those who skipped the seasonings.
So, the next time you're making that macaroni and cheese, add some cayenne pepper. Or, opt for the green curry instead of the pad thai at your go-to Thai takeout place. Your belly will thank you.
