Friday Favorites: Cinnamon

By Lifeasarunningmom @RunningMom6
Friday Favorites: CinnamonI absolutely love cinnamon and go through it like crazy. I buy the huge container at Costco and do pour it bit by bit into a smaller spice bottle that fits on my spice rack. I add cinnamon to something at least once a day. You can find me putting it into my coffee, my hot tea, my steel cut oats and it can go into pancakes, waffles, and so much more. Those latter three don't happen as much. The first....every day!
With the taste of cinnamon in my mouth today I thought I would look more into cinnamon and share a bit about it. I learned that extracts from the bark of the cinnamon tree have been used as medicine throughout the world to lower blood sugar, lower cholesterol, and treat yeast infections. And yes, once people run the science nowadays they get mixed results and can't confirm if and how cinnamon makes a difference.
I wouldn't go loading up on cinnamon though in hopes to "cure" something as with anything, you can have too much of a good thing and for some, that can lead to bad results. But for me, I feel pretty happy adding a dash of flavor here and there throughout the day knowing that perhaps, just perhaps, this little dash of yumminess may be doing my body some good too.
What is one spice you adore?

Daily Bible Verse: The Lord said to Moses, “Take the finest spices: of liquid myrrh 500 shekels, and of sweet-smelling cinnamon half as much, that is, 250, and 250 of aromatic cane, and 500 of cassia, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and a hin of olive oil. And you shall make of these a sacred anointing oil blended as by the perfumer; it shall be a holy anointing oil. With it you shall anoint the tent of meeting and the ark of the testimony, ...Exodus 30:22-29
