How often do you use cinnamon?
Over the past year, I've started serving cinnamon in many different dishes because of the health benefits. I started putting cinnamon in my chili, oatmeal, on toast, and in applesauce. My 23 month old loves sliced bananas with sprinkled cinnamon. There are so many health benefits including: lowering your blood sugar level, boosts cognitive functioning and memory/boosts brain function, stops medicine induced yeast infections, lowers cholesterol, helps with arthritis pain, helps fight against heart disease, etc. I try and serve applesauce with about 1 tsp of cinnamon on it, at least 2 times a week. I care for my family's health and want to do everything I can to help keep them well!
