Evening: Spice Up Your Dinner

If you choose wisely, even the spices you cook with can boost your metabolism. This spicy dressing in this sweet potato salad contains a nice helping of hot peppers that contain the compound capsaicin; this same compound that gives jalapeño peppers their kick has been connected with boosting metabolism and curbing cravings. If you're not a huge fan of spice, you'll be glad to know that tamer spices like turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon also have been shown to help your body burn more fat.
