After my cancer ordeal, I was on a mission to discover every superfood and superingredient possible to incorporate into my diet. It literally took only moments after I started researching before I learned about the benefits of turmeric. Not only does this spice add a delicious flavor to foods, but it is known to have amazing health benefits.
Turmeric has been around for thousands of years and is known to boost immunity. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help with a multitude of health concerns, from fibromyalgia to arthritis to headaches - but it also has cancer-fighting properties! I now include a reasonable dose of turmeric in my diet every day. My main goal is to boost my immune system and improve liver function, and everyday I'm meeting these goals.
Since turmeric has been shown to help improve the regulation of blood sugar and rid the liver of toxins, people have reported that using it regularly also helps maintain a healthy weight. My sister actually uses it to help control her rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and she is very pleased with the results. I add it to salads, vegetables, poultry and fish dishes, and especially to my NutriBlasts.
I would like to share one delicious recipe that Chef John Gregory-Smith recently published. It makes a great drink any time of day, but it is especially great in the morning to give your metabolism a boost.
Note: I prefer coconut water instead of the almond milk, but it does make for a thinner consistency.
