A very simple, yet incredibly delicious recipe. Using Apinya Thai chili sauce is super spicy! It’s a premium hot sauce inspired by Thai flavors but totally original. Made with real ginger, garlic, roasted red peppers, and Thai chilies.
Capsaicin is the main bioactive plant compound in chili peppers, responsible for their unique pungent (hot) taste and many of their health benefits. If you suffer from a sensitive stomach, ulcers, or heartburn, I highly recommend either staying away from all chili peppers, or trying just a little cayenne pepper in your recipes. And when you’re ready, move onto recipes like this.
On the upside, here are the valuable benefits of eating chili (if you can stomach it!):
You’ll sleep better. Recent studies prove that consuming just a little chili pepper (fresh or dried) each day helps us fall asleep, and stay asleep longer. And adding a little fresh-cut chili to your evening meal may also help you feel more awake the next day
Your heart will be healthier. Studies show that eating chili regularly helps keep your heart healthy by lowering cholesterol, keeping your blood pressure in a healthy range, and allowing more blood to reach the heart.
Your body will be able to fight inflammation, a leading cause of disease. Everyone these days seems to be talking about inflammation—not the type you get when you get a cut or a pimple, but inflammation inside our bodies and cells, the kind that can’t be seen, preventing diseases like arthritis and diabetes, and possibly cancer. In fact, studies have shown that those cultures whose diets includes plenty of hot chilies have lower rates of certain types of cancer, including colon and stomach cancer.
