Found a couple of interesting articles along with recipes on delish.com that I thought I would pass along.
Spices are an excellent way to enhance the flavor of food, and early research indicates that some spices may offer health benefits, too. Turmeric and cinnamon are among those studied by for their potential disease-fighting compounds. Preliminary studies have shown that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric powder, may carry a broad range of anti-inflammatory and potential cancer-fighting properties. However, further studies are needed to confirm these findings.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
