This is the most challenging time of year to stay healthy. The lack of sunlight is the major factor and being indoors more adds to our susceptibility of catching a virus. The most important thing you can do this time of year is to boost your immune system the best you can. I like to find natural ways to do so and there is nothing much better than turmeric.
Turmeric has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that aid in boosting your immune system.
This Turmeric Tea recipe is one that I use almost daily and I want to share it as I enjoy the comforting, warm, hearty yet sweet taste to it. I recommend drinking this at night if you can before bedtime or first thing in the morning to start the day off right.
Warm in a pot and stir:
1 cup coconut/almond milk
1/2 tbsp organic turmeric powder
1 tbsp ghee
1 tbsp local honey
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cinnamon
