Spice It Up
Looking to shake things up a bit in the New Year? Abandon your bland rice cakes for a more fun and flavorful snack. I particularly like the curry cashew trail mix from Grizzlie’s Granolas. It’s a delicious medley of all-natural ingredients: curry cashews, roasted almonds, walnuts, raisins, fruit-juice sweetened cranberries, apples, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. The curry not only gives the cashews a nice kick, but also adds certain health benefits. For example, according to some studies, curry may help prevent cancer and Alzheimer’s, and may treat inflammation. Also, I’ve heard that when you eat spicy food, it fills you up fasterso you don’t overeat. I can always use help in that department!
