My Beautiful Bottle and Turmeric Tea

Hello Gorgeous People!
Since we’ve been in Sydney we’ve been surrounded by beautiful scenery, great food and wonderful people…but it’s been a bit cold!
Sometimes it can be a bit challenging to stay hydrated when the temperature drops… So I’ve been loving our Turmeric Tea! It’s seriously delicious and warming and it’s soooo soooo good for you!

It is amazing! Since trying it 5 weeks ago I feel I could easily drink 2 litres of this stuff a day and you know what… I will.. I totally believe in listening to your body and when you’ve been through a period of stressful times, sometimes we need a big change to get back into balance!
So, why is this calming? Inflammation comes through irritation, this could be eating the wrong things, not getting enough sleep, the loss of a loved one, refined foods that are not recognised as food in the body, negative thinking and more… Inflammation can cause pain and lead to dis-ease in our amazing bodies!
So we need this Tea!
What do you need?
-1 nob Fresh Ginger (peeled and chopped)
-Same amount of Fresh Turmeric (peeled and chopped)
-1 litre of Almond milk (we love nutty bruce, you can make your own or buy an unsweetened variety)
-1 tsp coconut oil
-3-4 twists of freshly cracked black pepper
-ground cinnamon to sprinkle on
So simply add all the top ingredients  into a saucepan and gently bring to a simmer and lower the heat slightly for 10-15 minutes
Let cool and blend together until smooth
Pour into a mug and sprinkle with cinnamon
I’ve been using my ‘Awesome’ Bottle to store the extra Tea in and I think it just looks beautiful!

Now we are enjoying this beautiful drink, why does it work?
Simply put, there is something cool in turmeric called curcumin, a natural anti-inflammitory, in Ayurveda they recommend for the best results mixing this awesome little fella with black pepper to help absorbsion and to help heal the gut, mixed with the coconut oil, which aids absorbsion. Then almond milk is delicious and makes this creamy and feel super soothing!
I love this as a great start to the day or a warming pre-bed calmer!
Either way, you just cant go wrong or have too much, so enjoy gorgeous people!

Turmeric…let’s give it a go…

Happy Monday lovely people!!!

So…you’ve all heard the hype, you need Turmeric, it’s anti inflammatory, countries that use Turmeric have a much lower rate of disease, it’s a super food right… but how to use it?

Turmeric

Well, I just need to tell you this and then we will get onto the yummy nourishing stuff… sugar, the white stuff in biscuits, cakes, ketchup, Pringles, jarred tomato sauces, microwave meals, breads and so many more things cause chronic inflammation, so to reduce inflammation firstly cut out these refined sugars, eat fresh home made foods, as local, seasonal and organic as you can, or grow them yourselves and try adding in some Turmeric.

While I’m on the subject, fruit is not the same as white sugar, fruit is packed full of nutrients, minerals, fibre, fluids that hydrate and nourish your cells. If you are eating whole fresh fruit, that’s fantastic!!

You can get Turmeric in two ways, dried and in a ground powder or fresh in it’s root form, I love the root form! So, I’m going to share with you many ways to add Turmeric into your food….

So here is the first way I started using Turmeric, in a juice

The Orange Healer

-1 kg of organic carrots
-1 Turmeric root
-1 small chunk of ginger
-1 lemon
-1 lime
-1 orange

turmeric juice

pop all ingredients through the juicer and enjoy!

So I hope you enjoy this juice and keep nourishing that gorgeous body of yours!

Happy Monday all!xx
