    What hot (spicy) foods do is speed up your metabolism. If you’re dieting, it’s recommended that you eat hotter foods. If you live in Third World (Thailand, Mexico, etc.) countries where sanitation is an issue, hot foods are used to kill worms, etc. in your digestive tract. Now you know.

    yes! Spicy food is actually good for you! Just as long as you can tolerate it.

    This was unbearable. It had such a horrible tangy taste it made me gag.

    I tried this smoothie last night and it was very tasty. I followed the recipe with the following modifications/additions. I used Spicy V8, 1/2 clove of garlic, and a leftover piece of cucumber. I substituted water for the apple juice.

    I was very happy with it.
