With the holiday season upon us I have set a goal to be mindful with my eating and keep it as healthy as possible. I will of course enjoy all the wonderful food that my amazing family of culinary geniuses serves up on Thursday for Thanksgiving, but I’ll be watching my portion sizes.
This brings me to sharing a new healthy habit that I now enjoy every evening; Turmeric Milk! I have been taking turmeric/circumen capsules for a while now for my issues with arthritis and disc degeneration in my neck. It is great for inflammation, joint health, boosting your immunity, and relaxation. I was very excited to discover Turmeric Milk to help with all my issues, but it is also a soothing drink to sip on before I go to sleep.
Turmeric Milk is very easy to make, and I whip up larger batch so that I don’t have to make it from scratch every night.
You can certainly use any type of milk that you like. I happen to be an almond milk lover.
By the way, if you are fortunate to have a Natural Grocers (Vitamin Cottage) near you must get your spices there. They come in 3-6 ounce bags and they are so much less expensive than buying them in the tins or jars at the grocery store which are usually just over an ounce. Check them out next time you are in Natural Grocers. You will be amazed at how much money you will save.
Try out this Turmeric Milk recipe tonight and let me know what you think. I just love it and I think you will also.
