Can I tell you somethin’? Lately I’ve become obsessed with turmeric. And I mean… obsessed.
I’ve been adding ground turmeric to soups and dumping heaping tablespoons of it into curry. I have even come so far as to try adding it to tea and my coffee.
Note: in case you’re not familiar with it, you should know that turmeric is awesome. Turmeric is a deep orange spice that is popular in Asian and Indian cuisine because of its warming flavor and medicinal properties. Curcumin, a compound in turmeric, has been shown to help reduce inflammation in the body which is why turmeric has historically been used to treat wounds.
I’ve been trying to come up with other fun ways to add turmeric into my diet and even considered a DIY turmeric lip balm… but that seemed too far. I guess we’ll have to settle for adding it to sauerkraut.
