Do you find yourself down in the dumps, often resorting to medication to uplift your mood? Try seasoning your life with these 6 amazing herbs and spices. At times when you least expect them to, these seasonings for every mood can be just what you need to kick-start your day.
1. Roasted Garlic
Eating garlic may cause your breath to smell rather unpleasant, but on the upside, it can boost your mood a lot. Roasted garlic also has the same benefits as raw garlic with the stench reduced of course. If ever you find yourself feeling low, pop in some garlic and see how your spirits are immediately lifted.
2. Dried Oregano
Oregano has been used for quite some time now to cure depression. Sprinkle some dried oregano on your pasta if fresh leaves or oil is not available. It has the same great taste.
3. Lemon, Salt and Pepper
The three basic ingredients for seasoning pack quite a punch in your food. While lemon lifts the flavours, pepper adds just the right amount of heat. And if you use the Himalayan salt, instead of the regular one, you’ll find the taste of your dish more appealing.
4. Red Wine Vinegar
Tangy and sour – red wine vinegar is a secret weapon in seasoning meats. Toss it with a bit of olive oil, lemon zest, and crushed garlic and leave it overnight on your protein product for a juicy, melt-in-your-mouth taste. The dried powder version works just as effectively. And, it not just tastes great, but can cut through body fat too! If that doesn’t put you in a good mood, we don’t know what will.
5. Cinnamon and Vanilla
Cinnamon and vanilla are a match made in the heaven of all things sweet. While vanilla is an antidepressant, cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants. Together, the rich blend of these two flavours teams up for a very appealing and fragrant outcome. Pour it over your morning toast for a great start to the day.
6. Herbs – Rosemary, Thyme, Basil
Herbs can add a burst of flavour to your meal, allowing you to cut back on salt without sacrificing the taste. Rosemary is often considered to be a tonic for the liver. It is even used to treat debility and depression, making it all the more merry! Thyme and basil do some cool things too like reducing hypertension. These pesto recipes prove why we love our herbs so much.
