5 Healing Fall Spices with Fish
Part of our love for seasonal change is due to the new smells and flavors each season brings. We’re talking healing spices today, maybe some of these spices are fall familiars, while others are newer to you. Either way, spices are MUCH more than just flavor to kick up your meals, find out why!
1. Ginger -- Improves the absorption and assimilation of nutrients in the body, soothes nausea, and is anti-inflammatory, relieving joint pain. Who wouldn't want that?
2. Cumin -- A good source of Iron and Vitamin C, it is a powerful antioxidant that plays a role in fighting cancer. It has also been found effective increasing insulin sensitivity, thus a great nutrient for diabetics!
3. Garlic -- Is an antioxidant and researchers widely believe that the organic compound in garlic- allicin, which gives garlic its aroma and flavor, acts as the world’s most powerful antioxidant. The allicin is also a powerful antibiotic, that fights infection and bacteria. Include it more this fall to prevent colds!
4. Rosemary -- Medicinally, it has been shown to support healthy digestion, healthy circulation and alleviation of joint pain. The oil is frequently used for aromatherapy, and has been shown to enhance alertness.
5. Cinnamon -- Not only good in a roll, it is an antioxidant that supports healthy blood sugar levels, good brain function and (great news for cold season) helps to prevent and fight colds! There is a history of cinnamon aiding in fighting infections and even some types of cancer.
