Spice It Up for Winter




I love the change of seasons, for the most part! One of my favorites is using a variety of spices to "kick up" boring vegetables or tame my sweet tooth.

Here are some flavorful ideas and their health benefits too.

Anti-inflammatory:
*Cinnamon
*Cloves

*Ginger
*Turmeric
*Allspice

Anti-oxidant:
*cinnamon
*Turmeric

Blood sugar control:
*Cinnamon

Promotes good digestive health:
*Allspice
*Turmeric
*Ginger


Tames the sweet tooth:
*Cinnamon
*Cardamon
*Cloves

*Nutmeg


Try adding cinnamon and nutmeg to roasted sweet potatoes, ginger to carrots or curry and cardamon to butternut squash.  In addition to the spice, all of these vegetables may lower sweet cravings as well.

What will be your family's preference? Sample them all and let me know how the vote turns out.
