If you're worried about bland, boring side dishes, fear not! With these recipes, you won't need to feel guilty about that second helping.

If want to vary the taste of recipes without adding sour cream, butter, ranch dressing or other fattening condiments, try adding more spices.  Experiment with basil, parsley, garlic, dill, curry and oregano for starters. Not only do spice have a positive effect on your overall health, they are also virtually calorie-free!  Be cautious of any spice blend that contains additional salt.  For the healthiest choice, opt for the no-salt varieties.

Also, feel free to add additional fruit or vegetables to any of the dishes. Most people don't get the daily recommended amount of fruit and veggies, so heap them on for a different spin on the dish.  Visit this site to calculate how many fruit and veggies you should be eating daily based upon your age, sex and activity level.
