Have you started adding turmeric to your diet yet?
If you haven’t, you should – because it’s SO amazingly good for you.
There are so many benefits of turmeric including dramatically reducing inflammation. Inflammation plays a big part in heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s and most other common diseases.
Turmeric also dramatically increases the amount of antioxidants in the body and boosts brain power. Wow!

10 Best Turmeric Recipes
#1 One Tray Turmeric Chicken
This is the handiest dinner recipe. All you need is a knife, chopping board and roasting tray so it’s perfect when you can’t face the washing up. Turmeric is a fabulous anti-inflammatory and has such amazing flavour, especially when paired with rosemary and lemon. There’s so much flavour in here and it takes so little effort- just the way I like it! When it’s ready, squeeze the garlic from their skins and eat them whole, they taste incredible and are great for you. Serve this with a crunchy salad or a side of quinoa.

~Laruen, LAUREN CARIS COOKS
This light and crispy Golden Chicken is marinated in a honey dijon sauce and seasoned with just the right amount of turmeric for a healthy, flavor-packed dinner that’s ready in only 20 minutes!

Turmeric is an all round winner when it comes to health. It’s excellent at supporting the immune system whilst being great for skeletal, joint, skin and digestive system well-being too. Cumin and coriander are great warming spices that complement our health as well as adding delicate flavours that lend themselves perfectly to middle-eastern type cuisine. Not only are these falafels gluten free, vegan but they are filling, temptingly tasty and really nutritious.

Really all we need to do with this recipe is cook up some quinoa, let it cool slightly and then stir everything in and serve.
~Alyssa, SIMPLY QUINOA
A golden anti-inflammatory smoothie made with turmeric, delicious coconut milk and hydrating coconut water.
~Jemma, CELERY & CUPCAKES
These golden ginger turmeric cookies are quick and simple to make. They are low sugar with the sweetness coming from bananas. You can ice them with the cashew vanilla icing if you like but they are great without. Suitable for vegan, plant-based, refined sugar-free and general healthy diets. The cookies contain oats but you can use gluten-free oats if you’re following a gluten-free diet.
~Bastian, NEST & GLOW
Start your day with this clean-eating smoothie made with bananas and mango and flavoured with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and cardamom.
~Elaine, FLAVOUR & SAVOUR
And these are pretty special as they contain fresh ginger and turmeric. Yes, fresh turmeric with its rich golden colour and amazing anti inflammatory properties. But don’t worry if you can’t find fresh as ground is also amazing and will give the same colour and benefits – They taste absolutely delicious!
~Nikki, REBEL RECIPES
The heat in this carrot soup with ginger in fact comes from the ginger itself.
The orange hue is not just because of the carrots but also due to a good amount of turmeric.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
