Why is everyone talking about Turmeric? Because turmeric is one of the most anti inflammatory root veggies you can use. Turmeric is used in nearly every dish in India and they have one ofthe lowest rate of cancer in the world. Why is everyone so concerned about inflammation? Because inflammation is ground zero for all disease especially the Big C. Food is our first line of defense in fighting disease. Now you can't eat processed frankenfood and think this beverage is the cure. However, if you use this turmeric drink in combination with a diet that is 80% plants you will be living in the healthiest version of yourself. Turmeric fights inflammation that causes disease, joint issues and skin issues. This is also a great drink for athletes who need some joint support!
So how do ya make it. Easy breezy. This is a recipe of 2's.
In a sauce pan combine:
2 cups of cold water
2 tablespoons of powdered or freshly grated turmeric
2 pinches of cardomom
2 lemons juiced
2 teaspoons of raw honey.
Bring to a simmer, stir to be sure honey is dissolved. Then let it cool.
Once cooled pour through a sieve/strainer/cheese cloth into a large jar so you are drinking a liquid and not turmeric powder. At this point I usually water it down a bit more cuz I like a lighter glass of sunshine but taste it before you do that. This can be served just as is or do half turmeric beverage, half seltzer. Keep it in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy!
