Turmeric To The Rescue

As I was walking to Trader Joe’s tonight, I noticed my forearms were achy and tingly. Maybe (probably) from doing burpees and throwing sandbags yesterday in my “Back To The Future” themed workout (my workout coach likes to keep things “fun”). So when I got home I decided to make a turmeric tea.

Turmeric is a powerhouse spice that has been found to help with pain, inflammation, digestive issues, autoimmune disease, skin disorders, Alzheimer’s and cancer. I’ve seen a lot of articles on it and came across yet another one today. Here’s an excerpt:

“Turmeric has the ability to selectively target cancer stem cells, which are at the root of cancer, while having little to no toxicity on normal stem cells, which are essential for tissue regeneration and longevity.” Click here for the article.

Are you thinking you might like to try some turmeric tea? I got my special recipe right here for ya:

Turmeric Tea (serves 2)
1 1/2 Cups Filtered Water
1 1/2 Cups Unsweetened Almond Milk or Coconut Milk
2 Tsp. Turmeric Powder
1 Tsp. Maca powder (optional)
1 Tsp. Cinnamon powder
1 Tsp. Pure Maple Syrup
1 slice of ginger
Put all ingredients in a pot on the stove and cook on medium to heat until it comes to a simmer. Stir to blend out powdered ingredient chunks while heating (may require a whisk).
Pour in some mugs and sip the goodness.
