Health Tip of the Week:
Recently I've been asked many questions about Turmeric
This Indian curry spice has been around for more than 4,000 years but is growing in popularity lately, becoming today's top herb.
It has been used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese systems of healing to treat a variety of ailments including; menstrual difficulties, arthritis, skin disease and enhancing energy, just to name a few. Scientists have discovered that it has anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants and inhibits cancer growth!
Athletes are using turmeric to recover faster and protect their joints.*
How can you reap the benefits of turmeric?
It is found in supplements, multivitamins and other formulas that are specific to benefits such as joint health or pain relief.
I use a daily turmeric supplement from Mega Food which contains organic turmeric root, pepper and fresh fruits. I use one scoop in my morning smoothie daily, delicious!
You may have seen turmeric in the spice isle of your market. I love sprinkling turmeric on my eggs, adding to soups and other savory dishes. I find that it has a earthy, smoky taste when warmed.
Recipe of the Week
A delicious latte to be enjoyed morning or night. Turmeric does not contain caffeine so this would be simply heavenly before bedtime as you unwind from a busy day!
1 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
1 tsp turmeric (or 1 tablespoon fresh, grated turmeric root)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger ( or 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger root)
Raw honey to taste
dash of pepper (pepper helps enhance the benefits of the turmeric)
Gently warm your milk in a saucepan, make sure not to boil. Add turmeric, cinnamon and ginger. Wisk or use an immersion blender to create froth. Continue to stir until warm through. Add honey and pepper to taste and Enjoy!
I hope you all have a fantastic week!
