Turmeric has been used for centuries in traditional medicine and cooking practices from around the world. In recent years, turmeric consumption has gained in popularity as scientists and physicians begin to unravel the extensive health benefits of turmeric. Many people are therefore interested in adding turmeric to their daily routine in order to maximize the effects of turmeric consumption. However, many are left wondering how they can add extra turmeric into their diet. In this blog post, we will suggest several ways to increase your turmeric consumption.
Blend it into a smoothie or juice it
When making a smoothie or juice, fresh turmeric can add great colour and flavour, in addition to many health benefits. However, if you don’t have fresh turmeric root on hand, a pinch or two of the ground spice can still be effective.
Brew turmeric tea
For centuries, ancient cultures brewed turmeric tea to help alleviate inflammation and pain. Many grocery stores and specialty tea stores now sell turmeric-based teas, or you can make your own by simmering turmeric with coconut milk and honey. This is known as “golden milk” and is gaining in popularity for its delicious, earthy flavour and the health benefits provided by daily turmeric consumption.
Stir up a curry powder
A simple, easy and traditional way to add more turmeric into your diet: create your own curry dish. A regular curry powder contains 4 parts ground cumin, 1 part each of turmeric, cayenne and paprika and 8 parts ground coriander. You can then use this curry powder to season meat, soups, stews, chickpeas or any other meal that you are preparing.
Fortify a soup
In general, a few pinches of turmeric can be added to most soup recipes without changing the overall flavour profile. It adds both a rich colour and the many health benefits gained through regular consumption of turmeric.
Season roasted veggies or spice up a side dish
A great addition to any side dish, fresh or powdered turmeric can be tossed with assorted veggies, such as potatoes, cauliflower and broccoli and then roasted in the oven with olive oil for a hearty and delicious accompaniment to any meal.
One of the easiest and most efficient ways to gain all the health benefits of turmeric consumption is to take a daily supplement.
