I made cinnamon roasted almonds today for no good reason other than the fact I love the delectable smell that permeates my home when I roast them. So in honor of a much loved spice, I offer up three of my original recipes. If you are a cinnamon lover, you will love me for sharing them with you.
Before I introduce you to the dastardly world of my butter-laden recipes I should remind you of the many benefits of cinnamon!
- Just 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower LDL cholesterol.
- Cinnamon may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes.
- Cinnamon has shown an amazing ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infections.
- In some studies Cinnamon reduces the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.
- Cinnamon has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.
- In a study at Copenhagen University, patients given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast had significant relief in arthritis pain after one week and could walk without pain within one month.
- When added to food, it inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage, making it a natural food preservative.
- Smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory.
- Cinnamon fights the E. coli bacteria in unpasteurized juices.
- It is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.
And there you have it! In providing you this list I hereby absolve myself of any other negative health effects you may encounter by using the following recipes on a routine basis. ;)
