When it comes to seeing excellent results from your nutrition plan, how you prepare your food is half the equation. You can choose healthy foods, but if you prepare them using high-calorie methods and unhealthy sauces, you are not going to be doing yourself any favors. However, if you cook them using a small amount of olive or coconut oil along with plenty of fresh herbs and spices, you will fare far better and be ready to indulge in a delicious guilt-free dish.
One such spice you will want to ensure you are adding to your food is nutmeg. Nutmeg is excellent for improving your immune system, boosting circulation, helping strengthen your hair and skin, and for promoting healthy brain function. Nutmeg can help eliminate fatigue, stress, and anxiety. It can help just about everyone, so there is no reason not to include it in your diet plan.
But how should you add it? What are the best ways? Here are a few ideas to get you started…
- Add Nutmeg To Vegetables. A straightforward way to get more into your day is to add nutmeg to your vegetables as you prepare them. Add a little butter and then sprinkle the nutmeg on top and you will have a fantastic side dish in seconds. While the butter will add calories, you don’t need much as a little goes a long way.
- Sprinkle It Onto Baked Fruit. Another delicious way to serve nutmeg is just to sprinkle it over fruit once the fruit is done baking. You will find this works great for apples, pineapples, bananas, or mangoes – your choice.
Baked fruit is a great way to end a meal: a dessert low in fat and full of nutrition and here is a way to liven it up a little. Serve it with some low-calorie whipped topping and you will really have yourself a delicious dessert.
- Make Your Pumpkin Spice. If you are a lover of all things pumpkin when they come out in the fall, you should know you can make your pumpkin spice goodies year-round.
The three spices forming pumpkin spice are nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon, so combine these three and start sprinkling the three spices into your coffee, onto a bowl of oatmeal, or into some vanilla yogurt. If become creative, you can probably think of many other ways to add it to your day.
There are just a few of the many ways you can start incorporating this spice into your daily diet plan. When was the last time you had any nutmeg?
