Everything old is new again! According to a poll, women are growing nostalgic for several styles from the past, thanks to celeb trendsetters bringing them back into fashion.

Thanks to an article I read in First for Women! A recent study at Cornell Universtiy found that Oregano and Allspice killed 100% of the germs they came in contact with! Including oregano & allspice, these other spices also helped reduce or kill food pathogens they came in contact with including salmonella and Ecoli:
Thyme, cinnamon, tarragon, cumin, cloves, garlic, cayenne and oinion pwders, sage and corriander - destroying at least 80% of the bacteria within 15 minutes. The amount you need? 3/4 tsp of your fav spice on your meal!
Not only will you cool off with these treats - they pack a healthy and slimming PUNCH!
