Allspice, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, mace and nutmeg make great additions to holiday foods.
Incoporating them into your diet:
- Try adding ginger to a fruit glaze
- Blend frozen raspberries with a pinch of ginger and a small amount of fruit-juice concentrate and toss the glaze with fresh berries or sliced fruit.
- For a warm treat, add a cinnamon stick to your coffee grounds before brewing
- Top with nonfat or low-fat whipped topping and a sprinkle of shaved chocolate and enjoy!
