Why You Should Add Turmeric To Your Diet – Like Yesterday.

Turmeric is one of my favorite spices. Not only does it add an extra dimension to anything it’s mixed with, but it also packs some massive health benefits. New to turmeric? No prob, let’s cover the basics as to why you should add turmeric to your diet.

Turmeric’s Benefits:

  • Natural liver detoxifier
  • Natural anti-inflammatory that works as well as some anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Used in Chinese medicine as a treatment for depression
  • A natural painkiller
  • Speeds up wound healing
  • Shown to increase cognition in humans

How To Add Turmeric To Your Diet:

Tumeric can be taken in a pill form or added to your daily recipes. I personally enjoy a good curry multiple times a week, and curry is an awesome way to get turmeric into your diet. Fun fact: curry is actually my favorite breakfast. Ok, ok I know not everyone is keen to start (or end) the day with a curry. No worries. I add turmeric in so many places so here are a few suggestions:

  • With eggs – sprinkle on top of a sunny side up or mix in with your scramble
  • In golden milk lattes (my afternoon pick me-up!)
  • Add to soup – it’s an especially delicious addition to carrot soup
  • Add it to a smoothie
  • Mix it into your oatmeal (I love to do a turmeric / ginger mix in mine)
