With our foods changing season to season our smoothie bowls need to too! I have been so caught up having cool, colourful, fruity smoothie bowls I didn’t really think of a warmer, heavier kind. Our bodies naturally crave different foods over different seasons which is the reason I naturally felt guided to create my Warming Spiced Smoothie Bowl Recipe. This is defiantly my 2019 winter obsession.
Spices and herbs are a fantastic foods that warm up the body and flood it with disease-fighting antioxidants. Herbs and Spices have antibacterial and antiviral properties and many are high in B-vitamins and trace minerals. Using them daily in our cooking and combining many of them together will boost health immensly! There’s another benefit: Because they’re so flavorful, they make it easier to cut back on less healthy ingredients like salt, sugar, and added fat. Well there’s a good enough reason to spice up your life…right?
“Wars were fought overthem, kingdoms were lost because of them, and new lands were discovered in search of them. In ancient times and for centuries to follow, (herbs &) spices were often more precious than gold. But before they were money, spices weremedicine.”
