I was assisting a friend on a school assignment where she track the nutritional value of the food she ate.
She happens to be Asian Indian and uses a lot of spices. I helped her track down the nutritional value of some of the spices she uses and was very amazed and interested.
I think the one that caught me most by surprise was cilantro: 300+% of the daily allowance of vitamin C in a cup. Okay more cilantro in my diet...Now!
