    I've heard about the health benefits of cinnamon, but now that I'm not doing grains or dairy, I'm not sure how to incorporate it into my diet. Any suggestions?

    For a "desert" you could make an omelet with just eggs, and slice some fruit to put over it and sprinkle cocoa powder and cinnamon.


    Or add it to a variety of shakes.


    If you drink coffee, try out adding cinnamon to it. Tastes pretty good.

    Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me."--Ferris Bueller, 1986

    In tea, on fruit, and in protein pudding are mine.


    Cinnamon with fruit is a good idea because it will lower the glycemic index of a meal, reducing the amount of insulin the pancreas has to secrete.

    Stabbing conventional wisdom in its face.

    I like it on my primal treats. Delicious on egg custard and on coconut flakes mixed with coconut milk. When I eat sweet potato or pumpkin I always use a good bit too. And definitely on fruit, as Stabby mentioned.

    Nice. I eat apples often, so will have to sprinkle on some cinnamon next time.


    Does anyone use cinnamon on meat or vegetables?

    It's good on squash, sweet potatoes, or pumpkin. If you eat fruit, you can sprinkle it on pretty much any fruit and it'll taste pretty good. Sprinkle it in tea and coffee. This sounds crazy, but try it on bacon! It's really good. Sometimes I add a few big sprinkles to my daily salad. It adds a really unique flavor to a salad when combined with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

    Carpe Diem!

    Anything with a Mexican flavor can benefit from a little cinnamon--esp. chicken dishes.

    vietnamese cinnamon is delicious. I use it with any and all curries I make, or just straight up to give a sweet flavor to savory meat. Great it all stir fries.
