Spice it up! I use spices & herbs [ more info found here ] on everything…barely any cals & oh, so flavorful.
Is it necessary to use sweetener in coffee, cereal, oatmeal, etc.? No. Use a dash of cinnamon &/or pumpkin pie spice.
Do you need to use sodium-filled, sick-o Tabasco sauce on pizza? Nope…use all-natural chili flakes.
Oh, your stomach hurts? Don’t run to the med cabinet like a weak pansy. Eat some fresh ginger.
Here’s some ways I use my favie spices:
+ Exhibit 1. Cinnamon: sprinkle on coffee, cereal, toast, peanut butter, fruit, oatmeal, &/or any type of desserts. It also happens to relieve pain, helps heal headaches, & boosts the memory.
+ Exhibit 2. Chili Flakes: I <3 everything spicy. Add it to pasta dishes, pizza, fish, steak, tofu, salads, &/or veggies. Oh, + it speeds the metabolism.
+ Exhibit 3. Cumin: so yummy in rice, quinoa, beans, & on potatoes. Aids with cold symptoms & digestion too.
+ Exhibit 4. Ginger: I eat boatloads of ginger. Whenever my stomach hurts, I eat a handful of pickled ginger [ otherwise known as: sushi ginger ]. Add ginger root to veggie juices &/or smoothies too.
+ Exhibit 5. Pumpkin Pie Spice: my fav. It’s a mixture of all-spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, & ginger. Add this to coffee & tea [ it helps stabilize blood sugar too ; )]. Thank me later!

When you say you eat a handful of ginger, do you mean the actual ginger or the spice?? I have a terrible cold right now and heard that ginger will help me get better faster!!
I eat diced ginger pieces (from the ginger root) or a handful of gari ginger (sushi ginger). Hope that helps babes! X
Try using cayenne too 🙂 it’s soooo good and spicy!
This is great to think about I never think about the sodium in Tabasco sauce!
