So while in Orlando this last time my mother in law had brought up about nutmeg and she knew it was good for you but just couldn’t remember off the top of her head why. Well That of course inspired me to look it up once I got home and found it very interesting. I love learning how all these different things affect or health and can help with different issues we might have with everyday living. And course when I find something interesting like this I have to share it with y’all! 🙂

Nutmeg

Nutmeg known as ‘jaiphal’ in Hindi can be found in the array of spices present in kitchens. This very popular spice which looks like a walnut is not only famous for its aromatic flavor but also for its health favors.
