“Recent studies on spicy vegetables and cooking spices show a positive correlation towards longer lifespans, improved blood pressure +++“– Paul Ebeling
If you want your body to burn, start with your tongue. Hot sauce, cayenne, chilies all contain a substance called capsaicin that can bolster your metabolism.
So, next time you are making pasta, thrown in some red chili flakes.
The Big Q: Is your soup too bland?
The Big A: Throw in some cayenne to spice it up and burn an extra 10 calories every meal.
A bit of fiery flavor can give your metabolism a quick boost. If your palette just canmot deal with the spice, have no fear, as there are certain non-spicy peppers that contain dihydocapsiate (DCT) that can produce the same effects.
Bottom line, pile on the peppers!
The Key: Add some spice to your regular dishes; eggs, sauces, pasta… you can put some cayenne pretty much anywhere. If you are not big into spices, start small. Try a dash of Tabasco on your eggs and bacon, and work your way up.
