Any good health properties of cinnamon that you know of?
yes, food guru said as fat burning properties and does some other shit that is good for you too - but typical me, I was not listening properly!!

Amen to cinnamon.
For a while now I've been having a half cup of low fat cottage cheese with ground cinnamon and a few blueberries on top. Good snack
also on top of roast cauliflower apparently -= have not tried that one though!!!

I noticed this thread because thats what I have been having before heading up the mountain for a day's boarding. About 3/4 cup of rolled oats, teaspoon cinnamon, a whole banana, a squirt of honey and milk all thrown in the blender until smooth. I can go for hours on that.
The cinnamon seems to get your circulation going well.
