Health Benefits of Cinnamon and Easy Recipe Ideas!

Cinnamon is one of our favorite spices with its sweet scent and spicy flavor! Cinnamon is a spice from the bark of Cinnamonum trees. Cinnamon is popular for its ability in lowering blood sugar as well as its anti-inflammatory properties. Adding cinnamon to your dishes can lead to a lower spike of blood sugar from a meal. Anti-inflammatory foods are often studied for its effects against diseases and problems such as acne and gut issues. 

Because the flavor goes so well with sweet and savory dishes, cinnamon often goes with various different recipes. Please check out some of our recipes using our Jamaican Jerk Quinoa Cup for easy ways to get fiber, protein, spices, and more to your daily diet!
