I’m discovering just how sensitive your stomach becomes to junk food after being (fairly) healthy a majority of the time. One piece of milk chocolate and bam! I’m running to the bathroom every 30 seconds, sick to my stomach all night. It’s a reminder that our bellies are not waste buckets and we shouldn’t be treating them like dumpsters (even if it tastes damn good).
People often don’t realize how great spices can be for your health and how much distinct flavor you can add by simply adding a variety of spices to your energy bars. Cardamom is an excellent source of iron and magnesium, ginger has healing and soothing properties, and coriander seeds have a surprising amount of vitamin C, unlike most dry spices. Along with a variety of nuts and seeds (and other yummy components), you can have a perfect mid day pick me up with an infinite amount of nutritional benefits. Who knew optimal health could be so good?
