Spiced Turmeric Elixir

When it comes to nutrition and holistic remedies it is so easy to become overwhelmed because the news and media is saturated with so much info that sometimes you don't know what to believe!  That's why I keep it simple and eat as many fruits and veggies as possible.  It's also why I follow the ayurveda way of eating and healing my body.  I discovered ayurveda through Deepak Chopra's teachings and it means the science of life.  Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India, nearly all Tibetan, Chinese and Greek medicine was derived from the ayurveda system.  The body is designed to take care of and heal itself as long as you give it what it needs, ayurveda will help your body find it's perfect balance. So when it comes to information I trust, I am wayyyy more likely to put my faith in something that has stood the test of time.  Ayurveda is where I found out about turmeric and all its amazing heal powers.  Turmeric is pretty much "anti" anything bad in the body, inflammation, viruses, disease causing bacteria, carcinogens and it has even had the same impact as prozac on humans, all in all it has about 600 healing properties.  This golden elixir is so excellent for the body, it's great for inflammation but the fat in almonds is amazing for your nervous system.  You can drink it morning, noon and night but it is a great way to wind down so I highly recommend at night.  You can also add it to quinoa flakes like I did.  Let's get started...

What you'll need:

1 & 1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk 

1 tablespoon of coconut oil <-Helps to absorb everything into the body

1 tablespoon of wildflower honey

1/2tablespoon of turmeric <-feel free to add more

1/2 teaspoon of cardamon

1/2teaspoon of nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon of black pepper 

1/4 teaspoon of saffron to top 

Method:

Combine all the ingredients into a sauce pan at a medium heat and stir.  Once it's nice and warm either pour it into your mug and top with the saffron or pour it over some quinoa  flakes, hemp seeds and chia seeds, it has amazing texture when it's all combined together!
