      I love adding spices to our meals, I didn’t even know it was healthy because it tasted like sin!

    Red chili really does boost metabolism. That’s why eating something spicy makes you want to go to the bathroom almost immediately.

    My family (my kids mostly) don’t like these spices in their food, especially turmeric. It would be great for them to have the health benefits of it but if they don’t like how it tastes, I wouldn’t force them.

    • Ana Brose says:

      It’s nothing major, so don’t sweat it. As long as you give them healthy food- they’re all good.

    Cinnamon is probably the most acceptable thing here and red chili.

    I didn’t even know that there’s such a thing called organic turmeric.
