    I know that many of us use spices (and herbs) to liven up our meals, but I was wondering about the actual health benefits of these spices, so I started to surf around to find out.

    I found the following article:-

    Ginger and Weight Loss - Safe Slimming (UK)

    - which was very interesting to me, because I always put a bit of ground ginger in my black coffee to make it a bit more piquant (you need that when you drink gallons of it like I do! :eek:).

    It turns out that ginger, along with chillies, turmeric and cinnanon, all 'kick start' the metabolism which is great news for us! :) The article tells you about the other good things these spices do too. (I nearly always put cinnamon on my hot shakes & porridge, and curry powder - inc. turmeric - in my shakes, so it might have helped my weight loss, who knows?!)

    It's nice to know that these things are actually doing you good as well as flavouring your food! :D

    Interesting, I wasn't really aware that they're doing me any good just thought they made things taste nicer!
