The Incredible Turmeric Recipe Round-Up

The Scoop

Turmeric is a spice belonging to the ginger family. Turmeric is what makes curry powder yellow – specifically its derivative curcumin —  that is said to be a powerful antioxidant. These bitter, earthy roots are also considered as a cure for everything from arthritis to Alzheimer’s and bowel cancer.

The Hype

Turmeric has a long history of providing super healing powers. Let’s step back in time to ancient India when turmeric was first used. Thousands of years ago, one of the world’s oldest forms of holistic medicine was born called Ayurveda, which involves cleansing the body from undigested food through plant-based drugs, special diets, massages, mediation, yoga, life style changes and more.
In Ayurvedic cooking (and all curries) turmeric is the star of the show. Turmeric is often prescribed by Ayurvedic practitioners to support the blood, liver, joints, immune system and digestive tract. In India, about 80 per cent of the rural population depends on traditional Ayurvedic medicine. According to MedIndia.net, turmeric is “five to eight times stronger than vitamin E and stronger than vitamin C, this antioxidant breakthrough may help boost your immunity, maintain normal cholesterol levels, and puts the brakes on aging.” WebMD also has a long list of benefits for you to read through.

The Experiment

If you’re impressed with this miracle root, then it’s time to start experimenting! Lucky for you, there are so many different ways you can include it in your everyday cooking, smoothies, lattes, curries, salad dressing and even cakes 😉
