How to store spices:
Keep dried spices someplace cool and dry and away from direct light.
Check expiration dates for the best flavour.
Generally, powdered spices last about a year, while whole or leafy dried herbs can last 1-3 years.
To check for freshness, put a little bit in your palm and rub with your finger.
You should smell a full aroma. If not, it has probably lost some of its spicy power.
Use your hands:
It’s easy to eat too much, especially when you eat out and the portions are huge.
That can lead to weight gain and higher cholesterol. What is a true portion?
There is a “handy” way to tell. One serving of meat or fish is about what fits in your palm.
One serving of fresh fruit is about the size of your fist.
A snack of nuts or serving of cooked vegetables, rice, or pasta should fit in your cupped hand.
