BOOST YOUR HEALTH WITH WARMING WINTER SPICES
SEASONAL CULINARY TIPS FROM THE PARK IGLS MAYR CLINIC
In the colder months, we instinctively lean towards dishes which warm us up from the inside. As well as improving the flavour of a dish, the right spices can also enhance this warming effect and boost our health. Markus Sorg, Head Chef at the Park Igls Mayr Clinic, creates Modern Mayr cuisine dishes that are alkaline, light, delicate and delicious. Spices play an important role in his gourmet fasting creations thanks to their combined taste and health benefits.
When used correctly, spices have wide-ranging health benefits. This can be anything from cleansing the blood and having an antibacterial effect to reducing inflammation, colds and fevers. They can also tackle problems such as stomach pains and sore throats or help burn fat and reduce blood sugar levels. Sorg reveals the eight warming spices we should be using this winter to boost our immune systems.
