Boost your health with a squeeze of this and a dash of that. Eating just one meal that contains capsaicin — the compound that gives hot sauce and chile peppers their heat — not only reduces levels of hunger-causing ghrelin but also raises GLP-1, an appetite-suppressing hormone, says new research in the European Journal of Nutrition. Other scientists found that people who drank capsaicin-spiced tomato juice before each meal over 2 days ingested 16 percent fewer calories than those who drank it plain.
Serving tip: Splash on tacos, brown rice, or low-fat tomato or lentil soup. Hot sauce also pairs well with citrus, adds Meyer. Top half a grapefruit with a few shakes, plus a teaspoon of brown sugar.
This chicken is coated in an almond meal (aka almond flour) crust that is both 100% paleo and gluten free. After a bake in the oven it’s dunked in a deliciously sticky sweet and spicy sauce. Sweet & Spicy Paleo Chicken Fingers: recipe here
If you want to figure out how “alpha” your man is, try taking him out for something spicy. According to a new French study, men who prefer hotter foods tend to have higher testosterone levels than man who prefer mild foods.
The research, recently published in the journal Physiology & Behavior, polled 114 men aged 18 to 44 on their spice preferences. The men were also served a dish of mashed potatoes, and allowed to put as much hot sauce or salt as they liked on it.
The University of Grenoble researchers found that men with higher testosterone levels (as tested by their saliva) both indicated a greater preference for hot sauce, and used more of it to season the potato. The amount of salt used, however, had no relation to testosterone levels.
You may have seen this sign go up recently at our Old Town San Diego store. We regret to announce that on June 28th we will be closing our Old Town Store.
