“Spices are a wonderful way to not only improve the flavour of the food you cook but also increase the potential health benefits. Spices provide natural flavours that contain a variety of phytochemicals, many of which are being studied today for their health benefits. Natasha’s book Spice Health Heroes is a fantastic resource for patients wanting to learn how to improve the health benefits of the food they are eating every day.”
