Have you ever wondered why spices are so much popular? Although you might assume that spices and herbs are just an add on to the food items we eat every day to add flavour and that freshening smell, they do impact your health. Yes they do! But in a good way!
In fact, spices have been known for their anti-inflammatory properties for hundreds of years. Some important spices include: Cloves, Mint, Oregano, Rosemary, Turmeric, Chili Pepper, Licorice, Thyme, Parsley. We at Protein Chefs use spices to not just add flavor to your food but to increase its nutritional content.
By definition: “A spice is a seed, fruit, root, bark, or other plant substance primarily used for flavoring, coloring or preserving food. Spices are distinguished from herbs, which are the leaves, flowers, or stems of plants used for flavoring or as a garnish.”
Spices usually tend to have strong flavors and are used in small quantities, they tend to add few calories to food, even though many spices, especially those made from seeds, contain high portions of fat, protein, and carbohydrate by weight. However, when used in larger quantity, spices can also contribute a substantial amount of minerals and other micronutrients, including iron, magnesium, calcium, and many others, to the diet.
