Born of necessity, spices have a rich history in human civilization.
Ranging in flavors, spices can take a dish to new heights, and transform the ordinary to extraordinary without adding any calories, fat, sugar, or salt. 
In addition, research has shown that spices provide many antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-viral properties just as fruits & veggies do!  
So go ahead and treat your taste buds: guilt-free!
