Daily Quote from Susan's Books

To become master of your outer life, you must first become master of your inner world — CEO of your mind. Teach your mind how to think differently: how to be calm, loving, courageous and optimistic. Optimism helps people cope with disease and recover more quickly from surgery. Even more impressive is the impact of a positive outlook on overall health, longevity and enthusiasm for life.

Scroll to find out about my favorite brand of spices, Nature's Wonderland Premium Spices.

For thousands of years, mankind has relied entirely on plants, herbs, and spices to treat illnesses both minor and serious. On every continent, stretching back centuries, native cultures turned to indigenous plants to develop healing remedies. Over 4,500 years ago, Chinese and Native Americans began to organize bodies of knowledge about the medicinal properties of herbs and spices. In this article, I will feature some of my favorite culinary herbs and suggest ways to use them in food. While I choose to eat at a plant-based diet, I will suggest some common food uses for spices using animal products, for those you who don’t embrace a vegan or vegetarian diet.

To purchase my popular book The Curative Kitchen & Lifestyle, click HERE. In this book, you will learn how easy it is to use healthy spices in your favorite recipes to reap automatic benefits.

Make Friends With Your Spice Rack

Make friends with your spice rack and, if possible, grow some culinary spices in pots in your kitchen and in your garden, weather permitting.

As a culinary instructor for over 35 years (and a former natural-foods caterer and private chef for some entertainment celebrities), I always look for the freshest and best spices available, and also ones that are affordable.

For that reason, my entire spice rack is filled with Nature’s Wonderland Premium Spices. Each of their spices is packaged in a convenient shaker-top bottle, sealed tight for freshness. Each spice is also hand-selected to be the highest quality available. So you’re probably wondering why you’d want to buy spices from Penn Herb Company when most are available at your supermarket. The answer for me is price, quality, and selection. They offer only the highest quality spice at a reasonable price.

You might want to start with their top-notch Top 10 Starter Spice Package.
