Are you as busy as popcorn on a skillet? Or maybe as a couch potato?

No matter how you live, food plays a significant role in your life. And you should care about the variety of what you put in your mouth.

When you’re not feeding your body enough nutrients, you can be in a pickle anytime soon.

Do you have an aversion to new foods? How about if you sprinkle a new ingredient on your favorite foods to begin with?

Here, let me introduce you to just three of them. Consider it food for thought and belly.

1. Carob powder

Carob is an evergreen Mediterranean tree.

It makes these dark brown, long, wide, flat pots. They’re incredibly comforting to squish and pop once they get dry late in the autumn.

In Romania, where I live, it’s not uncommon to see it through parks or in the countryside. As a child, I played with carob pots countless times.

Still, I only discovered carob powder when I became a mother, and my son was diagnosed with multiple food intolerances. Cocoa wasn’t an option for us. Carob was.
