Turmeric is trending! This root and its most active compound curcumin have many scientifically proven health benefits. It has the potential to prevent heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer! Many use turmeric because of its potent properties as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. This powerful root may also improve symptoms of depression and arthritis.

But, as a spice, it’s unknown to many of us in the west. Are you interested in incorporating this spice in your family’s diet? Here are some easy ways to get started:

Grate turmeric root into stews and soups, especially those containing root vegetables. If you add pepper and cumin you begin to get a flavor similar to Indian curries.

Add turmeric root to rice (or other whole grains) before cooking. Both flavor and color will impress and excite! For rice, cook in broth and add raisins and you’ve got something close to a pilaf.

Add a small chunk to your smoothie! Blend it in, and enjoy.

Drink turmeric tea. Simmer grated turmeric and ginger in hot water for several minutes. Stir in a bit of honey and enjoy.
