4 Health Enhancing Spices you should be adding to your Recipes!
1– Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory benefits. I add it to rice and chicken dishes, sprinkle it in soups and combine in my salad dressing recipes.
2– Cinnamon helps regulate your blood sugar and is a great antioxidant. I sprinkle a little in my coffee in the mornings; tastes great and is good for you, too! Cinnamon also combines well with Turmeric and Cumin in many savory dishes, but you only need a touch!
3– Cumin enhances immunity and increases metabolism. I love Cumin added to guacamole, my yellow rice and chicken recipe and almost any pork dish. Its great in Chili, too!
4– Garlic has many great health enhancing benefits; It acts as an anti-inflammatory and has great cardiovascular benefits, just to name a few. Garlic is easy to incorporate into most savory dishes. OK, so I just can’t cook without garlic ! I use it in almost all recipes where I use onion ( another great health enhancing bulb!).
You should use these only as seasonings, not as high dose supplements! As with anything, herbs and spices included, there are side effects in high doses. As my mother used to say ” Everything in moderation!”.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and will try incorporating these 4 Health Enhancing Spices into your own recipes!
