Who knew nutmeg was so good for you! I have always used it when I make creamed spinach, and in French Apple Pie, but there are so many other ways you can include it in your menu!

Nutmeg can be enjoyed all year long, not just in the fall and winter!

On Vegetables

You can use ground nutmeg on fresh vegetables (no canned veggies allowed)!

  • Sweet Potato

  • Red Potato

  • Carrots

  • Pumpkins

  • Squash

  • Cabbage

  • Broccoli

  • Cauliflower

  • Spinach

Add a pat of butter, olive or coconut oil and a dash of ground nutmeg. Voila!

On Fruit

Fruit always tastes wonderful by itself, but a dash of ground nutmeg kicks up the flavor!

  • Cooked apples

  • Bananas

  • Peaches

  • Nectarines

  • Pears

  • Pineapple

  • Mango

Cut up the fruit, sprinkle with ground nutmeg, and squeeze a little lemon juice. Combine several fruits and make yourself a fruit salad. No canned fruit allowed!

On Breakfast

I don’t know about you, but sometimes we have breakfast for dinner. Quiches are a favorite.

  • Quiche

  • Scrambled Eggs

  • Omelets

  • Pancakes

  • French Toast

  • Muffins

  • Oatmeal

Just after you remove the food from cooking/baking, sprinkle ground nutmeg so that the nutmeg seeps into the food.

On Desserts

Most of us use ground nutmeg in pies and baked goods, but it’s also great on them!

  • Fruit Pies

  • Cakes

  • Custard

  • Cookies

Sprinkle on the dessert soon after you remove it from the oven, so that the nutmeg can integrate/seep into the dish rather than the powder sitting on top of the dish.

Adding ground nutmeg in this manner to the desserts might allow you to reduce the amount of sugar or sweetener you include when cooking because the nutmeg adds a sweet-tasting flavor all of its own.

On Drinks

Add a twist to your drinks by sprinkling a little ground nutmeg on them.

  • Coffee

  • Hot Chocolate

  • Hot Tea

  • Eggnog

  • Cider

Final takeaway

There are many ways how you can add some ground nutmeg into your daily diet and start feeling the healthy benefits!

Make sure all items are the cleanest foods you can eat: fresh, organic, no chemicals/pesticides/preservatives, no imitation flavorings to see the best results!
