I have long been hearing from a variety of sources about the benefits of cinnamon, problem is I do not like magic spice very much, I didn’t grow up in the USA and I haven’t had a lot of exposure to foods with cinnamon, other than the rice pudding (arroz con leche), unlike in the US where every pastry seems to have a dose of cinnamon.
So, how can I incorporate this wonder spice into my diet without having to consume tons of sugar and flours along with it, that may completely override the benefits? well, here is a great idea, put a little spice in your coffee every morning, by either brewing half a tea spoon with the ground coffee, or grind it along with the whole beans, you may also even use cinnamon sticks in mixed with your coffee beans, put it all together in the grinder, and voila!
Have it every morning, to add a consistent and delicious supply of cinnamon to your body every day.
Some of the benefits of the wonder spice are:
- Lower LDL cholesterol (the bad one).
- Improve cognitive functions.
- Regulate sugar in your blood, for diabetics.
- Prevent strokes, anti-clothing effects in the blood
- Fight urinary track infections
There are tons of benefits attributed to this amazing spice, just search for Benefits of cinnamon if you want to find out more.
And that is how to improve your health a little every day, while enjoying an extra delicious kick in your morning coffee.
