Cinnamon

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.

Cinnamon’s Scent Boosts Brain Function:

  • Just smelling the wonderful¬†fragrance of this sweet spice boosts brain activity!

A Traditional Remedy:

  • Cinnamon has been used to provide relief with the onset of a cold or flu.. especially when mixed in tea with some fresh ginger.

A Few Quick Serving Ideas:

  • Cinnamon Toast…Sprinkle toast¬†with Cinnamon and Honey.
  • Simmer Cinnamon Sticks with Milk and Honey for a deliciously warming beverage.
  • Sprinkle a teaspoon over ground coffee before brewing.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon on apple slices… the spice prevents fruit from turning brown.
