In the new year we all want to focus on eating and drinking foods to help cleanse the body from the festive season indulgence.
I can think of a few things that will help boost your metabolism and get your body feeling ready to work hard during the day.
A favourite of mine would have to be the Chilli!!
At Sprigs we stock various chilli pastes and pestos.
Tangy Preserved and lemon and chilli paste
J'Buds Indonesian Chilli Paste with shrimp paste
The infamous Sprigs Chilli
Tomato Chilli Chutney for those who prefer something sweeter
Fermented Chilli paste which contains whey and has the benefits of probiotics.
Bonder Hot Sauce
Chilli's are jam packed with Vitamin C and a small amount added to food will boost it's nutritional value and help you fight off colds or any niggling sneezes. Vitamin C is a potent water-soluble antioxidant. It is required for the collagen synthesis inside the human body. Collagen is one of the main structural protein required for maintaining the integrity of blood vessels, skin, organs, and bones. Not to mention the fiery sensation that might leave you in tears!
