How best to get these benefits?
It’s super easy! Try these:
BREAKFAST: Add a teaspoon of turmeric to scrambled eggs or a frittata.
LUNCH: Spice up your roast vegetables with a dessertspoon of turmeric. The flavour combines really well with cauliflower and root vegetables. Or sauté greens like kale, cabbage and broccoli with butter and turmeric – delicious! For a more subtle flavour, make an amazing (and healthy) salad dressing using olive oil, lemon juice, turmeric, himalayan salt and black pepper.
DINNER: This spice enhances the flavour of most soups. Add it to a creamy, curried cauliflower soup and to standard vegetable and chicken soups. For a more substantial meal, add the spice to cauli rice and top it with curried meat of your choice.
DRINKS: You can even incorporate turmeric into smoothies and teas! A turmeric-ginger combination works well. If you don’t like the taste of turmeric in your smoothie, just mask the flavour a little by adding more yoghurt and cinnamon.
NOTE: To get the most out of this miracle spice, take it daily in conjunction with black pepper. The BioPerine or Piperine in black pepper improves curcumin’s bioavailability and enhances its absorption by a staggering 2000 percent, so even a small amount becomes effective. If you choose to get a curcumin supplement, instead, make sure you buy one containing BioPerine as well.
