Quick and Easy Nutrition: A Shake of Cinnamon

Eating healthy doesn’t only mean consuming a ton of fruit, vegetables, whole grains and grass-fed beef.

Simple seasonings and add-ons like fresh lemon juice, ground pepper, unrefined sea salt and parsley—in addition to delivering great flavor—provide important health benefits as well.

Another healthy quickie is cinnamon. An innocent shake or two of the spice can help our blood flow smoothly and help regulate our blood sugar levels.

Add cinnamon to yogurt, pancakes, ice cream, oatmeal, fruit pies and raw or baked apples.

For those who indulge in coffee, it's great to sprinkle on a cup of jo!
