Heart Healthy Foods You Should Eat 4
Day 4 of the Healthy Foods You Should Eat series brings us to Cinnamon. Take a tablespoonful of ground cinnamon every day and see your cholesterol levels go down magically.
This natural remedy is also great at preventing formation of plaque. As a result of being a rich source of antioxidants, cinnamon can also prevent occurrence of cardiovascular diseases by preventing damaging oxidation of blood.
Even with all this evidence pointing to the wonders of cinnamon, I'm absolutely not advocating you start guzzling it – it has been found to be toxic in large doses.
I am, however, wholeheartedly encouraging a little pinch (or stick) here and there in places you might otherwise have overlooked (in your tea or coffee, added to savory dishes, etc.) – if not for your overall health, for its wonderful aroma and flavor.
And while we all have fell victim to the irresistible smells floating through an otherwise bleak airport or mall experience, this does not make Cinnabon a free-for-all. Not only is it much better to use cinnamon in healthy recipes, but you’re going to want to source your cinnamon somewhere you trust.
