Benefits of Cumin

My fiancé introduced me to cumin a few years ago. Though I’m sure I’d had it in plenty of Mexican and Indian dishes in the past, I never identified that smoky, yet pungent flavor I tasted in those dishes. Now that I’ve discovered the benefits of cumin both in flavor andin health, there’s no turning back.

Very similar to garlic, I thought cumin was limited to one type of food: Mexican. Actually, though, cumin brings out the sweetness of other spices in a host of other cuisines. These include Middle Eastern, Indian, and African dishes. Most recently, cumin has been making its way into U.S. dishes, likely due to our current taco craze. Besides tasting great alongside spices like, cardamom, fennel, thyme, and oregano, cumin helps to increase metabolism, aid with digestion, and prevent diabetes. The uses for cumin are seemingly endless, and I would love to hear how you all are incorporating this spice into your dishes at home.

Cumin can be used to treat:
Piles (hemorrhoids), Insomnia, Bronchitis, Asthma, Constipation, and the Common Cold
Cumin can be used to prevent:
Diabetes, Anemia, Cancer, Cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, Dementia Fungal infection of the skin, Boils, Rashes, and Pimples

Benefits of garlic

I put garlic and onions in almost everything I cook, not just because of the flavors, but the benefits of garlic Purple Garlicand onions as well. I used to think of garlic as an herb mostly used in Italian cooking. Then I learned it’s actually the most frequently used vegetable in the world.

Garlic is considered an herb because of the way it is used in cooking. Though you could eat it as you would most other vegetables, most people find that unbearable, due to the heat found in raw garlic. It is much more easily digested after it has been cooked or paired with something much milder, like an oil. That bearable heat, though, is one of the main reasons garlic is so good for you. It burns fat, thus naturally boosting your metabolism without any effort. The benefits of garlic don’t stop there.

It’s no doubt you’ve heard garlic is good for your heart. Did you know it’s also a natural antibiotic, blood sugar regulator, and cancer inhibitor? The benefits of garlic span far beyond just being a flavor in spaghetti, and I would love to hear how you all are using garlic both in and outside of the kitchen, below.

About Me

Hey Foodies,

My name is JaemiO and food is my passion!

About FoodiOOver the past nine years, I have been on a journey to better understand food, as I believe it is the ultimate vehicle for empowering all people. Though both of my parents were employed through agriculture, I still lacked the true understanding of our food system and the foods within it.

I created this site to help folks like you better understand food, the system it flows through, and how it can empower you mentally, physically, and financially. To do this, I am going to share my personal experiences with you and what I have discovered during my own food journey.

If I happen to say anything that captures your interest, I would love for you to get involved within my site. I love to talk about food and food sovereignty, and if you have anything interesting you would like to share or any opinions on my content here, please feel free to share. I love and welcome feedback.

A little more about me…

I started this journey severely overweight and with limited resources for fooducation (food education). Since then, I have lost over 100 pounds, learned how our food system works, and most importantly learned how I can help others do the same, no matter their budget.

To me the weight on the scale is not important and neither is the label on the food. You can be a size six and unhealthy and the food label may sound like its bettering the food system and actually be making it worse. There are other measurements you should be using to define your and the food system’s health. Neither have anything to do with a magic number or price tag.

I have tried many methods towards creating a healthier version of myself and our food system. Almost all versions succeeded, which is great. However, not all of those versions aligned with my budget or my beliefs, so it was difficult for me to keep them as a part of my lifestyle. It was not until I created a system that worked for me and my food system that I felt like both were working towards creating a better me and a better world. This was when I became successful and this is what I want to share with you.

If you ever need any support during your own food journey, I would love to connect with you. Simply leave your comment below and make sure you visit my site regularly. I am always updating it with helpful and useful information that has worked for me and I know you will find it interesting,

Welcome to your food journey and best of luck achieving your health and food system goals!

Thanks for dropping by,


Founder of FoodiO
