tumeric&gingerI’m not a great tea drinker but I know of very many people who LOVE their tea. If you are a tea-lover try this “full of benefit” tea recipe. Thanks goes out to Juliette Holdaway for submitting it!

Juliette says: I just cut up a few slices (maybe 2 or 3 nickel sized slices) of fresh turmeric and fresh ginger in a mug. Pour boiling water on it and let it steep (approx. 5 to 10 minutes); add a small spoonful of raw honey (preferably local), and the juice of one fresh lemon. That’s the basic recipe but I usually add a few shakes of Ceylon cinnamon and about a teaspoon or so of whole cloves. (strain the tea and enjoy!)

This picture shows fresh turmeric on the left and fresh ginger on the right if you are not familiar with the difference. Most of us have likely seen the effects of these spices especially in Indian and Asian foods. It not only adds beautiful color and flavor but it’s also a healthy way to add that color and flavor!

There’s a lot of ancient wisdom that’s been passed down for generations touting the benefits of turmeric and many anecdotal testimonies too. I think that wisdom goes a long way so I lean towards supporting IT over what interrupts natural, human physiology. Many believe turmeric can calm heartburn, relieve liver issues, depression, inflammation and even ringworm. I don’t underestimate the power of FOOD, so these things make sense to me. However, our food must be full of the nutrition it was meant to have. If that is lacking, due to a myriad of reasons, then supplementing is critical. What to supplement is even more important as the marketing hype and deception is rampant.
