I’ve stocked up on my spices for the Winter. Purchased them on Amazon but it can easily be found in your local supermarket shelves. I prefer Organic/good quality spice.
Tumeric is great for combating inflammation in the body too. I add 1t of Tumeric and add a few dashes of Black Pepper (it helps to boost the absorption of curcumin), Cinnamon & Ginger and steep it all for 7 minutes with my tea bag.
There are a number of ways to sneak Tumeric into homecooked meals like. I cook Latin foods which already use a lot of spice so adding Tumeric to: brown rice dishes, beans, stews, roasted chicken, meatloaf/balls, soups, eggs, potatoes, tomato sauce… – just about everything is easy.
I had a great find at my local ShopRite when Bigelow tea went on sale last week for $1.49 a box – that’s more than half off! It was time to restock! As much as I enjoy a good cup of java I also love tea. Not so much “ordinary” tea but Chai, Green & many of the Herbal teas. These are my fav’s.
The best thing is they are all as yum served iced. During the heat of Summer their Spearmint/Mint is fabulous – I serve it iced to my guests who always comment how good and refreshing it is. The best part is I never have to add any sweeteners – it just doesn’t need it!
I’m off to enjoy my hot mug of deep red yummy Cranberry Hibiscus!
