WHY CARDAMOM IS THE NEW TURMERIC + 10 WAYS TO USE IT
There's a reason every culture uses herbs and spices in its cooking. Not only do they make food taste better, some of them also help us feel better. I tend to use a lot of cardamom this time of year. After all, it pairs so well with holiday flavors of ginger and orange! But when I looked it up, I discovered several science-backed reasons to incorporate more cardamom into my family's diet year-round.
Scott and I both have a ton of cancer in our families. While we've both been healthy so far, we're always looking for easy ways to help avoid the big C. And it turns out that cardamom is proven to help prevent cancer in mice. As for humans, the jury is still out. But since it's only side effect is deliciousness, we may as well give it a go!
In addition to potentially helping prevent cancer, cardamom is also thought to be anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-bacterial, and a natural way to help heal ulcers. I'm actually shocked it isn't more of a trend within the wellness community, especially considering how many ways there are to use it!
