You may be wondering how Cajun food can taste so delicious and rich and still be healthy for you. There are numerous very healthy ingredients and spices that are featured in Cajun dishes.
First of all, onions are a tasty addition that plays a part in many dishes. The occasional bad breath or watery eyes are worth the price. In fact, onions have been shown to fight diseases like cancer and heart disease, thanks to their anti-inflammatory properties. They not only fight disease, onions also contain antiviral and antibacterial properties, which can prevent infections and colds.
No one should ever sell short just how awesome bell peppers truly are. In general, bell peppers have plenty of vitamins A, C, and K. However, these vitamins are even richer in red bell peppers. What makes these vitamins so important is that they help in the prevention of age-related diseases and cell damage, along with boosting immunity.
If Cajun cuisine has a star, it is the wonderful cayenne pepper. Its spicy heat comes with amazing health benefits, as well as high concentrations of minerals and vitamins.
Aiding metabolism, chili and sweet peppers have substances that raise your body’s production of heat and consumption of oxygen after eating. This results in your body burning additional calories and helping you lose extra pounds.
Eating Cajun cuisine will reduce your reliance on store-bought vitamin supplements as you will now be eating healthier due to a diet naturally rich in minerals and vitamins. Cajun ingredients help prevent and fight disease, promote anti-aging, and aid in losing weight. The bonus you will get is the world-famous bold and delicious flavors delivered by Cajun dishes.
