Aside from the obvious benefit of boosting food flavour ( we love using Turmeric in Caveman Meals) there are so many healthy reasons! In case you didn’t know, Turmeric is a bright yellow aromatic powder obtained from the rhizome of a plant of the ginger family ( just to be technical). Basically its the spice that gives curry that yellow colour.
These days, due to its health benefits, people are including it in everyday cooking, rather than just the usual curry.
Eg – Trendy turmeric lattes, adding it to your scrambled eggs, adding to soups, smoothies and teas.
Why is everyone becoming so turmeric obsessed you ask?
Here is why-
* It is a strong antioxidant.
* It has powerful anti inflammatory effects and can ease joint pain.
* Fights colds and flu.
* Helps with indigestion.
* Can assist weight loss.
* Reduces bloating.
* Boosts the immune system.
So try it fresh or buy the powder and add a bit of turmeric to your life today!
But careful it doesn’t get on your clothes, it can stain!
