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.
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.
If you have trouble getting to sleep at night, try a Cinnamon-Milk Toddy!
Drink a cup of Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice herbal tea with a little milk stirred in (I like coconut or almond milk).
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!
* 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.
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!
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!
