Did you know that Capsaicin, the active ingredient in hot chili peppers, has been found to have the ability to boost your metabolism by more than 20 percent? However, this would also depend on your body’s sensitivity to the spice. If you already consume spicy foods regularly, your body might already be desensitized to this calorie-burning power of chili peppers.
Either way, I often cook many of my foods (especially my scrambled eggs) with cayenne pepper and red chili pepper flakes! My body might be desensitized which would suck, but I still like my food spicy!
So, if you don’t already spice up your life, you should! And keep adding a dash of cinnamon to your foods as well, because as I’ve mentioned before, cinnamon is another metabolism booster! I always put it in my oatmeal, my coffee, and even sprinkle it on my cup of vanilla almond milk 🙂
