Cinnamon -a high fiber way to add flavor to yogurt and smoothies

Just one teaspoon of cinnamon has about 5% of your daily fiber quota - it is a great choice for adding flavor and fiber to your morning yogurt, toast, or smoothie.

Overcome Cravings with Tea/Coffee

I always experience a food craving after lunch. To keep myself busy and tasty,I make myself a cup of tea or coffee. When I have coffee I add a stevia sweetener and semi-skimmed milk. It saves me calories and I feel satisfied.

Nighttime Cinnamon-Milk Toddy

If you have trouble getting to sleep at night, try a Cinnamon-Milk Toddy!

1 cup Milk (I use Soymilk)
1 teaspoon Cinnamon-Sugar mix
1 - 2 dashes extra Cinnamon (optional, but I prefer it)

Place all ingredients in a cup or mug, microwave for 35 seconds, just enough to warm it up. Drink it down before it cools. In other words, don't sip it.

To Help Sugar Cravings...

Drink a cup of Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice herbal tea with a little milk stirred in (I like coconut or almond milk).
It's cinnamony and sweet without any type of sweetener. It's great and really beats the cravings.

Sprinkle a little Cinnamon on it!

When enjoying a meal of cereal (hot or cold), dessert or even nuts consider adding a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. This fragrant spice has been shown to help stablize blood sugar (it works for me), as well as making food taste great!

Healthy Pre-Workout Protein Drink Recipe

* 10 oz of pure coconut water. I really like the one that I found at Whole Foods (Amy & Brian Natural Coconut juice with pulp), since it gives a richer and sweeter taste.
* One scoop (30 g) of Bioplex pure egg white powder
* Some frozen blueberries (maybe 2 tablespoons)
* Small dash of cinnamon, which helps the flavor and has health benefits too (aids blood sugar control, reduces cholesterol, and improves weight loss).
* Drink about 1 hour before your workout

Add a little spice to your life

When my jar of cinnamon was nearly empty, I added some Splenda to it and relabeled the container. It's so easy to grab it and shake a little of the mixture into coffee, tea, oatmeal, cottage cheese, pop corn, or on top of toast ---to add a little extra flavor to otherwise bland foods. Yum!

Hypertension / Diabetic / everyone friendly snack

Sprinkle ground cinnamon on a sliced apple. Not only does it taste refreshingly good, but there is some evidence cinnamon helps reduce high blood pressure. It takes an ordinary apple and makes it a dessert. Enjoy!

Visual Snacks

Keep a visual snack tower of real mini cups of natural applesauce on counter along with tin of cinnamon. When you are grazing for something to gobble, it's obvious.
