|If you’re using your spice rack as a decorative wall hanging and don’t know your cumin from your coriander, it’s time to spice up your life! In addition to enhancing the flavour of food, many herbs and spices have well-researched health benefits.
There’s no doubt about it: food — herbs and spices in particular — is powerful medicine. Whenever possible, opt for fresh herbs as opposed to dried as fresh herbs retain more flavour and nutrients.
To get the maximum benefit from your dried spices, it’s important to keep them fresh. That means tossing out any that haven’t been used in the last year.
Also, if your spice rack is above the stove, consider moving it to another wall, and keep it out of direct sunlight as well.
Your doctor of chiropractic can provide you with a wealth of nutritional tips and information on other spices and herbs that are as healing as they are tasty.
