Tip for the day: Cinnamon

Add a little cinnamon to each meal!

Apparently, as little as a 1/4 of a teaspoon of cinnamon added to a meal helps prevent your blood sugar from spiking, thus prohibiting the the release of insulin. Insulin, without getting too technical, is a hormone in the body that is released when your body has too much sugar in the blood and then pulls out the sugar and stores it in the fat cells. In other words, it causes the body to store fat!

Sometimes I don’t have cinnamon at every meal, but it’s very easy to toss a little into a smoothie, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea, etc.cinnamon

    I’ve been taking cinnamon pills for a few years. It’s an easy way to get cinnamon into your system on a daily basis!
