Baby... it's cold outside!

June 8, 2016

Winter has well and truly kicked in here in Adelaide! It's time to bring out those bulky blankets, dust of the panel heater and put on those thermal socks.



Another great way to warm up this winter is to add spices to your cooking. Spices help boost flavour to a dish and in some cases aid digestion, fight colds and flu's and act as an anti-inflammatory agent. Sign me up!


We decided to list our fav's in this post!


Ground Ginger

We love it because: It's an all-round spice that helps fight colds and flu's, aid's in digestion and can help with those that suffer nausea.

Use it: With everything! Especially in broths, Asian inspired dishes and teas. Don't forget to use them in your favourite desserts and smoothies.



We love it because: This spice aids blood sugar levels, assisting those with Type 2 Diabetes to control sugar levels and insulin resistance

Use it: This versatile spice is perfect with many of your breakfast favourites, such as a banana smoothie, flourless pancakes, oats and porridge and mixed in with yogurt. Add it to desserts like banana bread and cookies!




We love it because: Adding this aromatic spice to your dishes provides you with additional iron, magnesium, and calcium. Perfect with oven baked ham, Indian curries and desserts (like the Turkish Baklava)

Use it: Add cloves to your Indian or Asian inspired dishes, desserts such as cookies and pies.


Ground Coriander Seeds

We love it because: Another perfect spice to add to your Indian curries and Asian inspired dishes. This spice is best paired with cumin in your savoury dishes.

Use it: In curries, when baking breads, and sprinkle on chicken before grilling. Pair this spice with cumin and garlic and add to vegetables before roasting in the oven.
