Spices and Herbs to Start Your Day

Making the Most of Your Breakfast Can Be the Best Move You Make

SPARKS, MD--(Marketwire - Feb 7, 2012) - Everyone has heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And, making the most of your breakfast can be one of the best things you do all day.

Research shows that people who make smart choices at breakfast are more likely to make smart choices throughout the day, and to have a healthier diet overall. Adding spices and herbs to your breakfast is a simple way to not only make it more flavorful, but to also add natural antioxidants.

"Adding half a teaspoon of cinnamon to a fruit smoothie adds more antioxidants than 3.5 cups of fresh spinach," says Dr. Wendy Bazilian, Registered Dietician and Author of the SuperFoods Rx Diet. "Or, sprinkling a quarter teaspoon of black pepper on your scrambled eggs adds more antioxidants than a half cup of chopped watermelon."
