I’ve been through the phase of dieting; and honestly, I know how hard it can be for foodies out there.
So, instead of suffering from dull-looking food, here are ways you can make your food look tempting and delicious:
1- If you are cooking steak or hamburger
You can marinate your steak with low-fat sauce or spices if you like spicy food. Add a bit of color by adding some sautéed vegetables like bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, etc. You can cut them in fun shapes, too.
Or, if you’re craving a real burger, then try this healthy hack:
Buy your meat (rid of excess fat), then cook it yourself in an air fryer, oven, or pan fry it with olive oil. Olive oil is healthier compared to regular vegetable oils. You can add a low-fat sauce so that it isn’t dry.

2- Make vegetables look tempting
You can decorate using vegetables either by cutting them in shapes or use them to create a shape. One of the main dishes on a diet is a salad, and it can be delicious if you changed the way you had it. Make it fun, colorful and add more of the vegetable that you like. So you can eat it as a daily dish without being bored. You can make chips in the air-fryer using kale, potatoes, and sweet potatoes.

3- If you craving chocolate, but you can’t eat it:

4- If your craving for Snow Cone:
There are a lot of ways to satisfy your tummy when it’s craving for a snow cone. You can create your own from whatever ingredients you want to have when your belly yells for it. Stick to frozen fruits or fresh fruit puree for a healthier alternative.
5- If you love to have some dip with your chips
So you’re craving chips but you can’t find one for diet or don’t like the taste of store-brought chips, don’t worry. You can create your own chips and dip at home. Homemade fresh salsa, guacamole, mint yogurt, and hummus. You can decorate a bland and colorless dip with mint, paprika, pepper, or slice of lemon to make it more appealing.
