Like its "sister practice," yoga, Ayurveda—a Sanskrit word meaning "knowledge of life"—is an ancient system of promoting health by strengthening your life force. According to the 5,000-year-old tradition, foods hold various energies, and spices are potent sources of the good kind. Sabena Sarma's Ayurveda-inspired, single-serve packets of an organic "super spice" blend (ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, licorice root, black pepper, and turmeric) make it easy to shake a little positive, exotic energy into your meals and snacks. A "shot" a dayeach box contains a month's worthwill make smoothies, beverages, toast spreads, cereal, yogurt, stir-fried vegetables, and even fancy cocktails come alive with vivid flavor. (The licorice root makes the blend slightly sweet.) If a body of knowledge about health and well-being is 5,000 years old, still widely practiced, and attracting new fans every day, we figure it's got something going on. Spice up your life force!
