Five Ways to Enjoy Turmeric...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A cousin of ginger, turmeric is a golden root that’s rich in curcuminoids, compounds known for their anti-inflammatory properties.

Turmeric has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal agents that help strengthen the immune system.

A strong immune system lessens the chance of suffering from colds, flu, and coughs and may help prevent the development of certain diseases.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here are some suggestions for how to use it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


While fresh turmeric root is especially great in juices and smoothies, a pinch of the ground spice is good too. The slightly pungent flavor is usually well-masked in smoothies.⠀

➡️ ENJOY AS A TEA⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Steep grated fresh ginger and turmeric for a soothing warm beverage.


Turmeric's slightly warm and peppery flavor works especially well with cauliflower, potatoes, and root vegetables.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

➡️ USE IN SOUPS⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A bowl of soup feels even more warming when it's tinged with golden turmeric.⠀

➡️ ENJOY AS A LATTE⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Golden Milk  is a nutrition trend that tastes delicious and is very warming.  Sip on this beverage of simmered turmeric with non-dairy milk and honey to make an earthy and comforting beverage. I often enjoy a steaming mug in the evening. Look in my archives for a Golden Milk Recipe⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

NUTRITION TIP: Did you know that adding some freshly ground black pepper can significantly increase circulating levels of the antioxidant found in turmeric? Add a twist from your pepper mill to everything from tea to soups!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
