How can I incorporate organic turmeric powder into my daily diet?
Incorporating organic turmeric powder into your daily diet is a fantastic way to harness its health benefits. Here are a few ideas to help you make turmeric a regular part of your meals:
Golden Milk or Turmeric Latte: Prepare a warm and comforting beverage by mixing ⅓ to ½ teaspoon of turmeric powder with your choice of milk (such as almond, coconut milk, etc), a pinch of black pepper, a touch of sweetener (like honey or maple syrup), and a dash or ⅓ teaspoon of ceylon cinnamon powder. Heat the mixture gently and enjoy your golden milk.
Salad Dressings: Create a healthy homemade salad dressing by combining turmeric powder with olive oil, lemon juice or vinegar, a bit of Dijon mustard, honey, salt, and pepper. Drizzle it over your salads for a tangy and colorful addition.
Remember to incorporate ingredients which contain healthy fats (such as eggs, avocado, milk, etc) and add a dash of black pepper to your turmeric recipes. Black pepper contains piperine which enhances the absorption of turmeric’s active compound, curcumin. And curcumin is fat soluble, which means it breaks down and dissolves in fat or oil – this also enhances the absorption of curcumin in the human body.
