Did you see my post last week on 5 Amazing Health Benefits of Turmeric? I’m mildly obsessed with this anti-inflammatory spice right now. So, in honor of this potent power spice, here are my Top 20 Uses for Turmeric.
Turmeric: a real powerhouse
I love herbs and spices that have dual functions. What better way to get your medicine than with culinary spices that taste amazing. I fell in love with turmeric when I visited India several years ago. The golden orange spice that colors Indian curries is a powerhouse of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Cultures that eat healthy amounts of this spice have been shown to have less diseases like arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, Alzheimers/dementia, and even some cancers. I personally use turmeric liberally in my cooking. I just love it. And to make sure that I get enough, I like to make my own turmeric capsules by buying it in bulk and encapsulating it myself.

So why not broaden your palate a bit and add some more turmeric into your life?
