10. Spices and dried herbs

In order for you to use some of the staple foods listed in this article, you’ll most likely have to stock your spice rack too. (By the way, here’s our favorite spice rack from Amazon!) Herbs and spices add a unique flavor to all dishes and, sometimes, they also add a pinch of benefits.

Cinnamon, oregano, turmeric, cumin, ginger, rosemary, cayenne pepper are several spices and herbs that may even minimize inflammation and reduce the risk of certain diseases, including cancer.

Plus, when stored properly, they can last for two to three years. Just make sure you keep them away from light and moisture.

P.S.: Of all spices, turmeric and ginger have the most impressive health benefits. Both of them support the immune system, reduce pain, and decrease nausea.

On top of that, only 100 grams of raw ginger come with the following:
