The Spices of Life

Some people like their food bland and some like to “spice it up.”  Interesting findings were uncovered by a team of researchers at Penn State University.  

They prepared high-fat meals for 2 groups.  In one group they added a bunch of spices including rosemary, cinnamon and oregano.  What they found was the group that “spiced it up” had a lower triglyceride level by 31% and lower insulin level by 21%.  

So, maybe spice is the spice of life!
