What is your favorite herb or spice? Posted on 01 Apr 22:27 , 0 comments

If you had to pick just one herb or spice to keep in your kitchen, what would it be?  I am going to make it a little easier for you by taking Sea Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper off of the list.  We will just consider those two necessities like oxygen, water, and shelter.

 Based on my current diet I would choose cinnamon.  I put cinnamon on my oatmeal and in my protein shakes.  I could not survive without cinnamon because I could not tolerate either my oatmeal or my protein shakes without fresh ground cinnamon.
