Golden Milk

Posted on February 13

Turmeric is known to aid with digestion and liver function, help relieve arthritis pain, aid with heartburn, stomach ulcers, gallstones, inflammation and even may prevent some cancers.

Curcumin is the chemical found in turmeric and it may have anti-inflammatory, anticancer, and antioxidant properties, according to early findings.

Ingredients:

Unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
Honey or maple syrup
Ground turmeric
Cinnamon stick
Ground cinnamon
Ground ginger
Pepper
Cayenne

Directions:

To make this turmeric golden milk, simply add all the ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a light boil.

Turn the heat to low and let the golden milk simmer for a good 20 minutes to allow the flavors to come together.

Before serving your turmeric milk, strain it through a cheesecloth, if needed (if you’ve used whole peppercorns, for instance).

SUJA Juices....

Posted on January 27

The best way to consume fresh vegetable juice is immediately at home with organic, non-starchy veggies..... but sometimes life is too busy to pull out an extractor and do it yourself. So it is so nice to have found a new juice line that is organic, cold-pressed and very low sugar! Look for those that are based on non-starchy veggies and/or low sugar like the Turmeric Love.

In my experience with pasta like this, I cook a little longer than the directions to break down all the fiber so it is easier to digest.
