My Photo of The Day

My Spicy Photo of The Day.

 

Did you know it is thought that....

"Turmeric contains curcumin, an antioxidant that some studies show helps reduce the risk of heart failure and inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Curcumin can also help reduce the formation of gallstones. When turmeric is combined with other spices, as in curry powder, the effect is even stronger as the different spices enhance each others effects."

So it seems

Spices really do spice up your life in more than one way. 



Remember Spice Girls?

    We all need to go back to basics this is very evident indeed.
