We’ve been accused of being overly fond of spices. The world may label us “spice cadets” or “herbmaphrodites” but we’re tired of hiding our true selves. We love spices, herbs, and all of the things they do for us.
We love for all of our beloved herbs and spices. But we can’t deny that among the noble ranks of the spice world there are those which are destined for greatness.
There are 7 Spices which are so healthful and so beneficial to people in so many ways that they’ve been dubbed the 7 Super Spices. This Justice League of spices includes: cinnamon, oregano, ginger, dried red pepper, rosemary, thyme, and turmeric.
Like the Avengers, these spices defend humanity against its greatest foes. Unlike the Avengers, these spices can’t be defeated by Dr. Doom and his nefarious plots.
These spices and herbs also are rich in phytonutrients, such as carotenoids, flavonoids and other phenolics, all of which boast health-promoting attributes. Spices and herbs are classified as fruits and vegetables, but since they don’t have the water content of most produce they’re richer in these better-than-awesome-for-you compounds.
These spices can reduce inflammation, help relieve allergy and asthma symptoms, add antioxidants, promote circulation and lower blood pressure. They can help your immune system, all while making your every meal more delicious, fresher-tasting, and more robust in flavor.
We at Pinch are kicking off a 7-part weekly blogtacular on every super spice and the many ways they help us (spoiler alert: oregano cannot pick up your dry-cleaning). We will soon be offering the Super Spice 7 Pack featuring fresh and organic versions of these incredible ingredients.
Come to Pinch and see and smell these Super 7 for yourself. We can’t promise your life will be the same afterwards, but we can promise it will be more delicious with the addition of these unique titans of the flavorverse.
