Is your cinnamon the healthy kind?
I know there’s different types of spices, but I didn’t know that the type of cinnamon that’s abundant in grocery stores, cassia, contains a dangerous “…compound called coumarin, which may be toxic to the liver in high doses.” I put cinnamon on my oats every day. Yikes! Luckily, the cinnamon I buy, Ceylon, is the healthy kind. If your cinnamon doesn’t state that it’s Ceylon, toss it and order, Ceylon.
Here’s the organic cinnamon I get directly from Amazon. It’s only $3.02 for a little over 2 oz: https://www.amazon.com/Simply-Organic-Ground-Cinnamon-Ounce/dp/B00ZK8YIXW/ref=sr_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1503356300&sr=8-3&keywords=cinnamon+ceylon+organic
