But, before looking at recipes that use nutmeg for its wonderful flavor and aroma, I found an interesting article at FitDay about the 7 Health Benefits of Nutmeg. Would you believe that nutmeg can help to: Eliminate Stress and Fatigue, Improve Concentration, Relieve Pain and Indigestion, Eliminate Bad Breath, Detox Liver and Kidney, Improve Skin Condition, and Induce Sleep? No wonder it’s used so often during the holidays. 🙂

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup
The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth says she likes to sprinkle nutmeg on just about everything. She prefers buying whole nutmeg and grating it herself because it has a stronger flavor and aroma. This week, she’s looking forward to putting it on some Egg Custard, and Egg Nog. She’s also making Apple Cider Donuts and Spiced Pumpkin Bread with nutmeg this week. Dinners will include Mushroom Stroganoff, Shepherd’s Pie, Chili, Smoothie, and Pizza.
