Chalkboard Spoons with SpicesWhen you think about eating healthy to lose weight, you may begin to dread having to eat tasteless, bland foods for the next months of your life. However, healthy foods don’t have to taste bland. With the addition of some herbs and spices, you can boost flavor and enjoy great health benefits. Skip the fats and salt by adding some of the following herbs and spices to your favorite dishes.

Cinnamon – Cinnamon is packed with antioxidants and helps the body better regulate insulin, keeping blood sugar levels stable. Add it to fruits and other dishes that you want to add some sweetness to so you don’t have to dump on the sugar.

Turmeric – Turmeric is great with seafood, chicken, and even with rice. You can add a bit to your eggs in the morning or use it in a healthy, homemade salad dressing. Turmeric helps reduce inflammation and may help to fight cancer and prevent heart disease.
