For the Love of Turmeric



In my last post, I shared some whole foods that help to reduce inflammation in the body.  Turmeric was something that I featured in that post.  Since then, I have received a few emails asking of ways to use it.  There are so many great ways you can use Turmeric, I think some will surprise you.


1.  Curry Powder -- This is the most common way that people use Turmeric.  A curry spice blend is one that combines: coriander, cumin, mustard seeds, fennel, cardamom, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, turmeric and a little cayenne -- depending on how spicy you like it.  I had always bought curry powder, but since taking the Culinary Nutrition Course and reading Meghan Telpner's book, Undiet, I will never buy store bought again!


2.  Soups and Curry's -- This is a great way to use your freshly made curry powder.  This soup recipe is one that I created.  If you make it, let me know what you think!


3.  Latte's & Tea -- Mix together coconut milk or your favorite nut milk, turmeric, ginger & cinnamon along with raw honey and black pepper (this is needed to activate the turmeric) and you have a wonderful soothing, anti-inflammatory drink.  Give this recipe a try.


4.  Smoothies -- Now before you think I've gone crazy, hear me out.  You don't need to add a lot to your morning smoothie.  Start with 1/4 tsp so it isn't overpowering.  You can work your way up from there.


5.  Veggies -- if you love Cauli-rice, try changing up the flavor with turmeric and serving with your next curry dish!


I hope this has given you some new ways to add Turmeric in your diet.  I would love to hear from you.  Did you find something that inspires you or do you have a favorite recipe to share?
