Comments Off on A Spicy Recipe Rub – Help for Inflammation


A few weeks ago I was discussing the anti-inflammatory diet. Since a big component in this diet and food plan includes adding in specific spices I thought I’d share a great recipe I came across on EatingWell.com.  It’s a “rub” which can be used on most protein sources; it contains very few calories and has all the great benefits of fighting inflammation regardless of your own diet plan! So here it is:



  • 6 Tablespoons curry powder
  • 3 Tablespoons coarse salt
  • 4 teaspoons crushed red pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 Tablespoon dried mint
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
Combine curry powder, salt, crushed red pepper, cumin, coriander, mint,
turmeric and ginger in a small bowl. "Rub" on your favorite protein source and cook as desired. Note: not for those of you who prefer milder tastes although you could easily eliminate the red pepper and still get some great benefits.
