Spice Up Your Life

Spices have been sought after for centuries, and the variety of flavors and colors that they lend to modern cooking is unmatched. Our early ancestors also knew that spices could be beneficial to health, with records of spices used as medicine as far back as ancient Egypt. Improve your well-being and tickle your taste buds with some of these delicious flavors!

Garlic

A potent immune-booster, it can help combat the common cold. Delicious in pretty much any savory preparation, in dips, meats, pasta dishes and casseroles.

Ginger Powder

Often used to treat nausea, it’s a powerful digestive aid and also useful in reducing muscle pain and soreness. The warm, spiced flavor is delicious in smoothies and baked goods.

Nutmeg

A good source of minerals like iron, copper and potassium, but should only be consumed in small amounts. Adds a rich flavor to sweet or savory dishes. Great in mashed potatoes, squash, and vegetable purèes.

Coriander

The seed of the cilantro plant, used as an anti-inflammatory herb, to treat digestive issues and as a seasoning for sausages, rye bread, pickling and stews.

Cumin

Rich in minerals and vitamins A, C, E, and all the Bs, the peppery flavor works well in savory dishes and mixed with ground meats.

Curry

Recent research has shown that curry may boost your immune system, reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and ease arthritis. A fragrant yellow curry is great in soups, sauces and rice.

Cinnamon

With the highest antioxidant strength of all the food sources in nature, cinnamon should have a place in everyone’s diet. Sprinkle it anywhere you need a little spice, like meat marinades, yogurt or in iced coffee.

Turmeric

Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are found in the active ingredient, curcumin. Its intense, warm flavors and bright yellow color are a welcome addition to stews, curries, and smoothies.

Cayenne Pepper

Along with capsaicin, cayenne is packed with vitamins A and C and loaded with essential minerals. Use it to season meat dishes, or add a dash to honey, lemon and warm water for a detoxifying drink.

Paprika

Rich in anti-inflammatory capsaicin, paprika adds bright color and peppery flavor to stews, curries and casseroles.
