Turmeric has many reported health benefits such as being an anti-inflammatory, aids in digestion, helps alleviate asthma symptoms, and promotes sleep, but according to new research trials, Turmeric can also help with mild depression symptoms. A truly amazing food that aids in mental and physical health.
I had this delicious healthy salad at Finca Luna Nueva, an organic echo farm in the Costa Rican Rainforest. Each meal consisted of fresh fruits and vegetables organically grown on the farm. It was one of the healthiest weeks of my life including great people, healthy food, yoga and adventure. This salad’s dressing was made from Turmeric and was also organically grown.
There are many ways you can eat or drink Turmeric. I love a hot turmeric drink on a cold or gloomy day.
My recipe for Turmeric Tea:
1 cup coconut milk
1/2-1 teaspoon organic turmeric powder
sprinkle of cinnimon
Heat coconut milk in microwave or stove for 1 minute, add in 1/2-1 teaspoon organic turmeric and add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Enjoy!
