Indian Cuisine: Healthy Spices
Are you sacrificing health for convenience when you eat?

Sometimes, you have to experiment to create the food your body needs. Simple recipes with balanced spices may be the answer.

Processed foods contain chemicals and preservatives that may contribute to inflammatory conditions. They also don’t contain the richness of flavor that a home-cooked meal does.

You don’t have to rely on sugars and fats to have a flavorful meal. Spices have medicinal benefits and make the food taste good.

It’s best to buy whole, organic spices and grind them yourselves. You don’t need an overwhelming number of spices in your cupboard. Stock your supply with what you will actually use.

Listen as May Fridel joins Dr. Mike Fenster to chat about how to put spices to use for rich, flavorful meals.
