Just a quick post today but still sticking with the Vegan MoFo prompts...today's being...my favorite herbs and spices! This one is probably going to be non-climatic because I pretty much like them all for different reasons. So I guess I will point out a few individual ones to keep this months posts consistent!
I LOVE the way it looks, smells, tastes, and grows!
We've had a LOT of luck with Basil - both indoors, outdoors, in a rooftop garden, and on a window sill garden!
One of the healthiest things you can consume - some say! And my favorite Turmeric to buy by far is from The Raw Food World! Turmeric is one of the most powerful therapeutic herbs on the planet – it is highly regarded in the ancient Ayurvedic healing tradition of India and one of the most popular spices in the world. Turmeric is used in traditional Indian medicine as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral*. This Raw Wildcrafted Turmeric extract is made of pure turmeric root harvested by local farmers in the wetlands of India, low temperature dehydrated and cold water extracted to a standard of 95% Curcuminoids.
Helps Digestion. A teaspoon a day can reduce 80 percent of bloating in only three days. Its antibacterial oils not only kill any possible stomach bugs but also help in the breakdown of carbohydrates and proteins. Plus I love the smell and taste!
It has thermogentic properties that increase your blood flow and metabolism. Individuals who only use cayenne infrequently also find it reduces hunger. I just like to give my foods a KICK every once and a while and Cayenne certainly makes that easy! I think the BEST quality Cayenne can be found online...HERE.
And you can't go wrong with Curry! I mean...want can't you do with curry! Check out some of the curry flavored products you can easily find online! And of course with fall and winter near Curry is the perfect addition to many dishes!
