Turn up your turmeric game with me in 2021. Starting with this warming afternoon bevvy.
I used to incorporate turmeric into my daily life and SO many recipes. Sometimes you just fall off your game with little lifestyle habits like that, you know? Between changing careers, getting pregnant, moving, becoming a new mom and learning about parenthood in the midst of a pandemic and relocating twice, all the while trying to keep my sh!t together in the healthiest and most positive and upbeat way for myself and my family, turmeric kind of just lost its relevance in my daily life for a bit.
But, NO MORE! I’m re-turning up my turmeric game in 2021. Why? Because beyond being versatile and packing a uniquely flavorful punch wherever you use it, it’s medicinal and healing. It reduces inflammation and bloating, boosts brain function, provides mental clarity, and helps to prevent heart disease as well as many other diseases. I always, always feel better with some turmeric in my life. Trust me, it's a little thing that can make a big difference in the way you feel both mentally and physically. This Warming Turmeric Latte is the perfect midday pick-me-up and so quick and simple to make, especially as most of us are working from home these days. I hope you’ll try so you can experience all the benefits for yourself. Sending you love, light, and warmth.
