Winter is a perfect time to enJOY some great spices. A few that come to mind are cinnamon, cardamon, cayenne, tumeric, ginger and ginseng.

All of these spices can be incorporated into things like hots drinks and into your cooking. These spices all add flavor to your dishes but also promote thermogenesis (the rate which food is broken down) and promotes weight loss!

When we eat real foods, herbs, and spices they truly are medicine and they all have their own unique healing properties. How delightful is this? As the saying goes, just eat ‘real’ food.

Be open to trying new herbs and spices as well as new foods and food groups. See it as a craft and enJOY playing with diversity.
