5 Health-Boosting Spices That Are Perfect For Winter Cooking
Cinnamon is one of the most buzzed-about spices, especially in the colder months. It adds a warming, delicious flavor to many of your favorite recipes, and it’s actually really good for you. Cinnamon is great for keeping inflammation at bay, while also packing in a healthy dose of antioxidants, and it may even help promote better blood sugar balance.
So, go ahead and sprinkle some cinnamon into your morning cup of coffee, add some to homemade vegan muffins, or get creative and enjoy it mixed into a homemade plant-based curry.
Ginger is another warming spice that makes a great addition to your diet this winter. Like cinnamon, it’s great for warding off inflammation, but it’s also ideal for digestive health and may even help ease aches and pains.
You can try making a ginger and cinnamon “latte” with coconut milk to help fight inflammation and keep your immune system strong. Add a pinch of turmeric for an added boost.
We can’t talk about powerful spices without talking about turmeric. This is the most talked about spice when it comes to reducing inflammation, but it’s also be found to help keep the immune system strong.
It’s a spice we all could benefit from enjoying during the colder months. You can enjoy it in soups, stews, stir fries, or whip up a turmeric milk latte with some coconut milk, a pinch of cracked black pepper, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.
Strong, flavorful, and loaded with health benefits, cloves can really help spice up your recipes this winter.
You can find ground cloves at your local grocery store to easily sprinkle into recipes to help keep your immune system strong, support digestive health, and combat inflammation.
Love chai tea? You’ll love adding cardamom to your diet. This is a flavorful spice that packs in some impressive health benefits. Rich in antioxidants, digestive, and antibacterial properties, it’s a great option for the winter months.
