Do you add turmeric to your meals? Did you know it has superb anti-inflammatory properties that fight infection and strengthen the immune system?
In this post I share with you how to make a golden milk and a turmeric salad dressing.
I. Turmeric Latte
I love turmeric latte because it’s warming, grounding and very nourishing for the body when it’s cold outside. The ingredients in this golden milk include cell protective compounds, anti-inflammatory properties and a brain boosting effect.
Ingredients for one serving:
– 1/2 cup of non-dairy milk (I think hemp milk works best but you can also use almond, oat or rice milk)
– 1 tsp of turmeric
– 1 small piece of fresh ginger
-1/2 tsp of cinnamon (I add nutmeg as well)
– 1 pinch of ground black pepper*
– A dropfull of stevia or maple syrup (or two dates)
You can either mix all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, of blend them together and then add a 1/4 cup of boiled hot water.
The second method takes less time and tastes just as good.
*IMPORTANT: the curcumin in turmeric is best absorbed in the body in combination with piperine, found in black pepper.
II. Salad Dressing
Two tablespoons of hemp seeds*
A teaspoon of tahini (even better will be few soaked cashews)
A generous bunch of cilantro
A dash of mustard seed
A tablespoon of nutritional yeast
A pinch of Himalayan salt
A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
A pinch of oregano spice and garlic to taste
*The compounds in turmeric are fat-soluble so you need to consume it with a serving of healthy fats. ————— 🥦🥦🍍
The brands I use:
—~>> The base is spinach, steamed Brussel sprouts and few slightly warmed pineapple chunks.
Spicy, hearty and sweet = > my favorite combination! 🙌🏻

p.s I am also a firm believer that the food we eat brings comfort and holistic healing to our physical and energetic body. The color yellow can be used therapeutically to open up the solar plexus and bring vital energy to the spleen, liver pancreas, and stomach.
