Do you recall those typical round steel boxes which had 7-8 smaller bowls filled with different spices? I am sure we all have memories of such spice boxes from our childhood. While some households still use them, fancy plastic containers have taken their places and that vibrant colour pop that we used to see through that single spice box is now becoming a rare sight. 

However, whether you keep the spices in one box or different, their importance in our food and life cannot be undermined ever. Not only do spices add texture and flavour to your dishes but did you know some spices also help in increasing your metabolic rate. Here are 7 spices that are perfect if you are trying to lose weight:
