Food is one of the most essential pieces of our health program.
When we can get food right, our body breathes a sigh of relief.
But when we can use super-foods like turmeric the right way, we can get an edge in our healing journey that can support us every day, safely.
Turmerics anti-inflammatory benefits are one of the many benefits it has and in this article, we will be talking about 3 turmeric recipes to supercharge your health.
1. “Golden Milk” Recipe
- 1/2 tsp fresh black pepper
- 1/4-1/2 Tbsp turmeric powder
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/4 cup water
- Touch of cinnamon
- Honey to taste
This first recipe is a fusion of my own and Colin from Natura Training Institutes.
It’s a daily dose of warm sweet goodness and really simple to make.
Mix the coconut milk, water, black pepper and turmeric powder together.
Heat them up in a pot so that the turmeric gets activated and black pepper mixes to increase the absorption of turmerics active ingredients…
Then simply add the cinnamon and honey to taste, pour it into a cup and enjoy.
