Delicious and Nutritious
Bay leaves are an excellent, Paleo-friendly way to add some flavor to your meals. Just throw one leaf in a pot of meat and vegetables and you’ll have a slightly sweet, aromatic dish, but there’s a possibility that you’ll have even more than that.
Spice Up Your Life
Studies have shown that adding herbs and spices to your diet has a number of health benefits, including lowering blood pressure and increasing glucose tolerance. According to Mark Sisson, bay leaves, along with other herbs and spices, contain high levels of antioxidants and various compounds that can help reduce inflammation and pain. So if your arthritis is flaring up, the best thing may be to reach for a bay leaf.
