Everyone now seems to know how good turmeric is for your body and mind, but how do you use it in cooking?

When it comes to eating healthy, spices are many times overlooked. So if you want to supercharge the health benefits of the foods you're already eating while adding more interest to your meals, head to the spice rack.

In the spice world, turmeric is the gold standard when it comes to healing properties — both in Eastern and Western medicine.

Sadly, few people know how to use it and make it taste delicious. For sure, it has a unique flavor that's not as approachable as cinnamon or some of the other spices you may be used too. It can range from fairly mild (white turmeric and turmeric from the Andes) to slightly bitter and astringent like the yellow Indian turmeric that you find in curry powder.

But even if you're not a huge fan of its taste, the great news is that turmeric pairs well with almost any other spice like cinnamonblack peppernutmeg, and ginger — and tends to be a bit of a chameleon based of the flavors you mix in!

Science And Holistic Tradition

The healing benefits of turmeric are well documented and in fact there are several compelling studies done in recent years on obesity in animal trials and diabetes in a small human trial.

In ancient Ayurveda, turmeric is considered a curative panacea and yogis to this day eat plenty of turmeric and even bath in it. Its astringent nature is prized for "drawing out" poisons or infection in the body — but from the medical studies turmeric has the ability to quench inflammation (which is at the root of so many health issues). Ayurveda considers turmeric to be purifying in nature for both the skin and blood.

In Western medicine, the active ingredient in turmeric called curcumin (not to be confused with cumin) continues to wow the medical community because of its multi-faceted curative benefits.

From boosting your memory, to helping your body recover from neurodegenerative diseases, like Alzheimer's and even wiping out ulcers in animal trials.

Shopping And Storage

Turmeric, like ginger, comes in a compact little root that's simple to cook with if you can find the fresh root. Gourmet grocery chains like Whole Foods carry whole yellow turmeric root, and both yellow turmeric and white are quite easy to order over the internet and range from $10 to $20, a nice 1 pound supply that will last a month in your fridge if stored properly.

Ground yellow turmeric from India is a staple in the spice isle of any local grocery store. Store ground turmeric in a dark cool cabinet or spice rack (away from direct light that can damage the natural oils and pigment where the active compounds reside). For the fresh root, layer an air-tight container with clean dry paper towels. Arrange one layer of roots and top with another paper towel. Repeat and close. Keep refrigerated, changing the paper towels as they become damp, to keep the roots from molding.

Cooking With Turmeric

Turmeric is simple to cook with, but to unleash the full potency it has to be eaten warm in a dish that contains healthy fats — since many of the vital compounds are fat-soluble.

If you're using the whole root, peel the skin off with a potato peeler and finely mince as you would with ginger root. Saute with carrots, onions, celery, for any recipes that use cooked vegetables (like soups, stir-frys, chilies, stews).

If you're a fan of mashed potatoes or mashed sweet potatoes, simply add finely grated turmeric (1 teaspoon for every two potatoes). For the ground dried turmeric: add to your steak or chicken rub, add a pinch to salad dressings, or mix in to your marinara or hot sauce. Add dressing or sauce will easily accommodate a pinch without changing the flavor much.

If you're a smoothie fan like me, turmeric is the ideal booster to add to your smoothie repertoire. Orange turmeric pairs well with orange, pink or red superfoods like carrotpumpkin, red bell pepper, raspberriesgoji berries and citrus. Add 1 teaspoon of the minced root or 1/8 teaspoon ground to your smoothie ingredient list and blend away. Add finely grated or powdered turmeric to hot teas, coffee drinks, and low-sugar fruit juices like grapefruit and unsweetened cranberry.

Turmeric Hot Chocolate

Enjoy this hot chocolate that's bursting with antioxidant-rich cocoa and spices. Avoid though coco mixes since they contain less of the real ground cocoa beans and add preservatives and sugar.

  • 1 cup whole milk preferably grass-fed, plain unsweetened coconut milk, or plain, unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cacao powder
  • 2 teaspoons sweetener of your choice such as honey, brown sugar, or stevia
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric or 1/2 teaspoon finely grated, peeled turmeric root
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:

Place the milk, cocoa powder, sweetener, turmeric, and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking occasionally until the cocoa and spices are mixed well and the mixture is warm.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?

By J. Davis III

Category: HEALTH
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES

trackingRecently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.

Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.

Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.

Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.

Here’s how it works...

“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”

“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”

Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.

Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.

“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…

What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?

Mind blown...

Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”

So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.

Watch Liz’ free presentation. It’s packed with revolutionary weight loss information—information that works. Because it’s based on how nature works.
