Talk about good for you! Paprika, which originally came from South America is full of amazing nutrients. It actually has nine times more Vitamin C than tomatoes plus tons of antibacterial properties and antioxidants. It’s also a stimulant and good for the cardiovascular system and great for reducing the risk of cancer. Wowee! Believe me, I was excited to include this super star spice in this delicious paleo chicken salad sandwich of mine!
On top of all of paprika’s amazing health benefits, it adds the right amount of kick to any number of paleo recipes. Kick things up a notch by adding it to mashed turnips, sprinkling it on top of eggs and bacon, or tossing some in to a soothing tummy tonic. It just goes to show you how important it is to get a variety of herbs and spices into your diet!
