Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices to use in cooking! A great way to add flavor to a tuna salad - I know, it doesn't seem like it would be good, but trust me. I heard about a new book that just come out today - Dr. Dean Ornish's new book the "Spectrum". Have you heard about it? There are so many ways to customize your diet based on your needs, but sometimes it's hard to know what to eat. The Spectrum provides you tools to customize a way of eating, managing stress, and exercising that is based on your own desires, needs, and genetic predispositions. Here's a link to an interesting discussion about it:

Not just food--cinnamon scent is very soothing, so things like oils or natural airfresheners etc would be great.

Try using real Cinnamon in your recipe and reduce on the sugar. You could also avoid the toxic effects of Coumarin in Cassia.

The Cinnamon that we buy in the US is actually Cassia which could be toxic.

Thanks Cater for sharing the link on how to identify real Cinnamon from Cassia. I could not believe that I have been eating Cassia all these years thinking that it was real Cinnamon.

Well I love cinnamon. I found out about the benefits as I was going to buy acai supplements for body building, when I noticed that its the antioxidants that help so I got looking for other substitutes as acai is very expensive. I realised that cloves are at the top of the list followed by cinnamon! Acai is around 10th! Then I looked up cinnamon and couldnt believe that I had stumbled across an ancient secret! I've always loved cinnamon but I cannot believe all the benefits! I now have approx 2tspoons a day and cloves in my tea. I noticed the difference after a week! Fortunately I checked out the difference between cassia and ceylon before hand. I'm now trying to get all my family on it. Although I feel like a jesus preacher now but for cinnamon!
