Want to spice up your meal? How about experimenting with different herbs and spices. Varying the flavors of your favorite foods can keep you meals interesting.

Asian: Spices like coriander, cardamom, cumin, lemongrass, ginger, and red pepper will lend your foods an Asian flavor. Several of these spices can be combined to make a delicious seasoning rub for fish and chicken.

Italian: Herbs like parsley, basil, rosemary, and thyme as well as garlic and allspice are key ingredients in Italian food.

Mexican: Use hot peppers, cilantro, and garlic. These seasonings can be used with meat, chicken, and pork, but can also be put in soups and salads.

Crunchy crust: A coating made with flour or bread crumbs is a high-carb no-no. A great, flavorful substitutions for bread crumbs is nuts & seeds (sunflower seeds, walnuts, almonds, brazil nuts, macadamia, etc) They can be chopped (or crushed up in a plastic storage bag) and used to coat fish filets, chicken, shrimp, veggies or anything else you’d normally want to put bread crumbs on

Another idea for breading is to use pork rind flour.

For crab cakes, meat balls and the like, try mixing up a paste of baking powder and beaten egg to use as a binder instead of bread crumbs and egg.
