As we fully embrace our Bozeman summer fun there are a couple of ways we can really spice up our diets for some amazing health benefits and also for some wonderful gustatory experiences too. Spices have been used throughout history for making food taste good and also for many health benefits. Learning to use spices and incorporating them into your cooking and your diet can be very beneficial for yours and your families health and can also help you to reduce the need for premade or prepackaged food that contain many artificial flavors and processed chemicals that are used to make food taste good but have health consequences associated with them like trans fats, MSG, high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, and excess sodium.
As the days turn warmer and the threat of sprinter (spring/winter) snow showers diminish we look forward to those cherished summer days of fun in the sun here in southwest Montana! Summer fun includes camping, fishing, hiking, swimming, boating, BBQ, horseback riding, outdoor games, rodeo’s, parades and endless summer days. All the fun in the sun is great but we also want to make sure we stay healthy so we can enjoy the fun and not be sitting on the sidelines watching summer pass us by because we don’t feel well.
