Add more spice to your keto food. You may doing your body a BIG favor.
Ginger can quell nausea. Studies show that this spice can also reduce inflammation that is associated with muscle pain and arthritis.
I have always thought that allspice is a blend of different spices. It is apparently not. Allspice is a berry with hints of pepper and cloves. It has been an age-old relief for digestion, toothaches and muscle pain (and can work wonders for your chicken and pot roast too!)
Cinnamon enhances the natural sweetness of food. You can cut back on sugar with cinnamon. And cinnamon can help control blood sugar levels! Sprinkle over baked apples and peaches. I personally want a pinch of it on my early-morning coffee.
I have nutmeg in my spice cabinet, but I was clueless on its use until I found out it boosts mood. (I may need loads of this because I am having trouble getting myself out of the funk lately). It tastes like cinnamon with a touch of nuttiness. I found out it can go naturally with both sweet and salty dishes. I sprinkle it over sauteed spinach. Hmm, more of this and I will be on my way to my new me!
