I’ve already spoken about the virtues of turmeric – a powerful healing herb, believed to act as an antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
From an ayurvedic perspective, you need to incorporate all six tastes into each meal. Using turmeric will help you with three out of the six—pungent, bitter, and astringent.
Now, here go 4 simples ways to include the orange root in your diet.
? Use turmeric as an extra ingredient on your usual meals. Add 1-2 tablespoon of turmeric powder to your teas, soups and veggies. I use it on rice for my kids and they love it.
?Prepare some Golden milk, a blend of hot milk and ground turmeric. ( I like to add in ginger, cinnamon, honey and black pepper).
?If you have a sweet tooth, a healthy treat before bedtime is mixing some turmeric powder with honey and just lick it off the spoon.
?If you can’t bother cooking, turmeric is a great supplement to take on its own either in capsules or drops.
