POWER INGREDIENT: SAFFRON

At HBFit, we’re all about food that's good for you: both in nutrients and flavor.

One of our favorite ingredients that satisfies both categories is saffron. A pinch of this spice flavors an entire pot of lentils, a chicken sauté or even a dessert! The possibilities are almost as endless as the health benefits, which range from treating asthma, psoriasis, insomnia and cancer to alleviating pain and depression. Saffron has even been cited as an aphrodisiac!

Since we may not have the chance to make a saffron curry regularly, here are a couple of easy ways we incorporate this super ingredient into our diet, of course we had to include something sweet! Photographs: Jax House, Bona Vita
