Spice Up Your Life
Are you looking for simple ways to add flavor to your food without a lot of fat or sugar? Don’t have time to prepare a complex recipe? Try adding flavorful herbs and spices to your recipes instead! Using a few herbs and spices can make even the most basic recipes taste deliciously new and exciting.
What’s the difference? Spices versus herbs?
It all depends on the part of the plant it comes from!
Herbs are from the green, leafy part of the plants, and can be used fresh or dried. Examples are mint, basil, rosemary, sage, thyme, parsley and oregano.
Spices come from the roots, stems, seeds, fruit, flowers or bark of a tree or plant. Examples are cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, mustard seeds, cloves and tumeric.
