Cinnamon Secret

My hypotheses for curing disease:
 *all remedies/cures will be found (...eventually...) in some already existing earthbound substance/plant/animal--not a chemically derived, man made pharmaceutical.

Here is a good example of one of those remedies--My Dad eats 1/4 tsp every day on his cereal--science is proving that it helps lower blood sugar, and keep it under control--very important for someone with pre or full diabetes!
The Secret of Cinnamon

Want to know a little bit more of the benefits of Cinnamon? More about cinnamon

Cinnamon is a spice many of us use in LOTS of recipes--I have also been trying to find ways to add it into my cooking.  Many middle eastern and Indian dishes use cinnamon as one of the aromatic spices in curries and other dishes-mmm!

Moroccan Couscous
  • 1 cup orange  juice
  • 1 cup instant couscous
  • 1/4 cup pitted dates, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Bring juice and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a small pot. Remove from heat. Stir in couscous and allow to sit covered for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a separate pan, saute dates,raisins, almonds, and cinnamon in 1/2 cup water for 2 minutes. Add cooked couscous. Mix well and serve warm.
