[su_dropcap]L[/su_dropcap] Let’s talk a minute about this Insect comment I made – have you heard the hype about it? I can’t do it. Scientists are saying cockroach milk (a crystallized protein) is the next “superfood” of the future. I am not convinced and won’t be eating a cock-roach anytime in my lifetime. Animal protein is the farthest I’ll go. See a cock-roach recipe here on Food Network. We vote Cumin! Pronounced “ko͞o-min”.
You have most likely read in my previous blogs that I clearlylove my herbs and spices! From Culinary to nutrition, to aromatherapy … each of them hold a special place in our bodies and today I’m talking about Cumin.
I’ll often use ground Cumin when making salsas or hummus and sometimes replace pepper with cumin instead. It has a different taste of peppery, it’s almost nutty. They are longitudinally ridged, brownish and also resemble caraway seeds.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CUMIN?
Due to the high amounts of Iron, Cumin is wonderful for women during menstruation who lose iron each month during this time.
