If you weren't aware by now, I'm happy to admit that I love love LOVE turmeric!
There's a big reason this powerful spice has taken over the kitchens and menus of 2016 and will continue to do so in 2017.
The compound within turmeric, known as curcumin, is the main active ingredient and gives turmeric it's famous golden colour. It's responsible for a host of anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to offer your immune system a boost. Turmeric can be extremely beneficial in weight-loss, lowering insulin resistance and activating fat-burning genes too.
If you're keen to add more turmeric-y goodness to your life this year, why not try making my Turmeric Fudge, it's super fun and tasty as a quick treat.
Not only does using coconut oil make this recipe bond beautifully, using a healthy saturated fat in conjunction with turmeric makes it easier for your body to make the most of the benefits of this powerful golden spice. Coconut oil can also promote heart health and improve blood cholesterol, so turmeric and coconut oil truly are a match made in heaven.
To make this recipe even more gut-friendly, I’ve added in my Love Your Gut powder which gently cleanses and sweeps away plaque built up in your gut over time. Since using my powder daily, I've found that I no longer experience that dreaded bloated feeling and know that my inner-microbes are in their perfect environment to flourish!
