If you avoid spicy foods or adding spices to your diet, think again! Many spices are considered “super-foods” – chock full of antioxidants and other healthy ingredients. Let’s explore which ones are good for you and why.
In ancient times, Egyptians took to trading spices for use in mummification (what a waste?). European explorers wanted them for preventing spoilage, and in some cases, for hiding the fact that the food was rancid, already. Today, we treasure spices for the flavor, but spices can also add a boost to the health of foods we eat. Take hot chili peppers, for example.
