Topic summary contributed by volunteer(s): Linda

Many recipes may be overhauled to include foods and seasonings that recent research has found to offer health benefits. Turmeric, which may significantly stifle the inflammatory response and protect our DNA, and cocoa powder, which may help ease chronic fatigue symptoms, may be easily added to smoothies or desserts. Ground flax seeds, associated with a number of health benefits, has a useful binding quality similar to eggs that can be helpful if replacing eggs in baking recipes.
