I love the aroma of cinnamon ūüôā

Cinnamon has been used since ancient times to help with digestion and a teaspoon has more antioxidants than half a cup of blueberries.

The sweet and warm taste of cinnamon is a perfect spice to use during the winter months.

I found a great article showing the health benefits of using Cinnamon…here’s some of it ūüėČ

Blood Sugar Control:

  • Seasoning a high carb food with Cinnamon can help lessen its impact on your blood sugar levels.
  • Cinnamon slows the rate at which the stomach empties after meals reducing the rise in blood sugar after eating.

A Few Quick Serving Ideas:
