Improve the Taste of Food That Lacks Flavor

The following ideas may help improve the taste of your food.

  • Try a variety of sauces, seasonings, and marinades, such as barbecue sauce, ketchup, meat marinades, mustard, salad dressings, soy sauce, spices, herbs, or teriyaki sauce.
  • Add flavor with bacon bits, chopped onion, nuts, or ham strips.
  • If you are not following a restricted diet:
    • Add extra sugar to foods. Try adding brown sugar, honey, dates, or raisins to your cereal.
    • Use extra salt or salty foods such as cheeses, cured meats, or snack chips.
  • Try tart foods, such as pickled foods, oranges, lemonade, or sherbet.
