Always battling with the 4 pm slump? Beat it with a snack loaded with protein, nutrients and flavor, like a taco. Sprinkle cayenne pepper and a pinch of dried red pepper, this will give your snack a fiery kick that will wake you up. The capsaicin, a compound which gives cayenne pepper its spicy heat, activates neurons in the brain to boost secretion of the energizing hormone adrenaline.
better than coffee, huh?
happy rainy thursday, liza!
The ancients have used cayenne for many things. We now use a variant as pepper spray. Not quite so appealing as the tacos.
I am dropping by via entrecard to check out what is new with you and at the same time to wish yah a great weekend ahead :) xoxo
I'd love to try that sometime, but sadly I don't eat spicy food. :(
