Research shows herbs and spices are chock-full of healthy compounds and fight inflammation and reduce damage to your body’s cells. That’s because they are rich in phytochemicals, which are healthful plant chemicals. Also, herbs and spices make food tastier and make it easier to cut back on less healthy ingredients like sugar and added fat. They may boost your metabolism and help keep blood vessels healthy. If you’re new to cooking with herbs and spices, try a pinch at a time to figure out what your taste buds like best.
