I love spices too! I think they actually make my belly feel better. And they make food satisfying at times when I'm craving things I shouldnt have. Yesterday made some spicy hot sauteed cabbage and tofu with garlic and sesame. And coconut rice with turmeric? Yum! Other times I'm ok with bland. Guess it depends on how I'm feeling.
Mmm sounds yum:). I dont really go overboard on the spices anymore like i used to lol but i still use a decent amount of them to both compliment the recipes i make and for there medicinal health benefits.
