HOW-TO-TUESDAY - TURMERIC PASTE








Turmeric is one of the BEST anti-inflammatory herbs/spices. It is good for SO MANY health concerns. Here is an easy way to incorporate it into your busy lifestyle. This simple recipe for turmeric paste can be added to numerous dishes, made into a smoothie, used as a sandwich spread, eaten on crackers or veggies or added to warm milk.

1/4 cup turmeric powder
1/2 cup filtered water
1/4 tsp pepper (pepper makes the turmeric more bio-available)

Mix ingredients, heat on stove until thickened--this doesn't take long!


Store in frig--will keep forever. Well, maybe not forever.

Golden Milk
1 cup milk (for all of us dairy intolerant-use alternative milks: almond, rice etc)
1/4 tsp turmeric paste
Heat on stove, then add honey to taste. Can add cinnamon, too! This is a very warming and relaxing drink; afterall, Autumn is here!
When I have any inflammation, I drink 2 or 3 cups of this a day.


Smoothie
Use my smoothie matrix on my website for infinite possibilities! Or, short and easy: milk, turmeric paste, honey, cinnamon.
