I like spicy foods and can't have chiles help!

Hi all,

I started an autoimmune protocol and so nightshades including hot peppers are out. I was wondering if anyone knew of anything that is not a pepper but is spicy so I can still liven up my meals without aggravating my arthritis.

Thanks!! :)

These spices/herbs aren't hot-spicy, but just flavorful:

Turmeric, Cumin, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, shallots, onions, garlic, coriander, cardamom, ginger, mustard, oregano, rosemary. Turmeric is especially healing to arthritis, as is oregano and rosemary.

I suggest you get a Penzey's catalog and read the descriptions of their spice mixes. I tried a bunch of them and it's a lot of fun. Some of them are combinations I never imagined would taste good together.

For example, I fell in love with their Tsardust Memories spice - salt, pepper, garlic, cinnamon, nutmeg, and marjoram. It's warm and spicy without being overpowering. Also, their Sunny Paris is my second favorite - but that one has green peppercorns.

Smoked sea salt rocks. I get mine at amazon, the brand is Maldon.
